CFIUS may pause or unwind transactions that might allow a foreign person to gain access or control of information sensitive to the interests of the U.S. Therefore, it is important to consider notifying CFIUS of transactions that may be subject to review. Under law, certain transactions require mandatory declarations, whereas others may call for voluntary notice.
