Event Report: Navigating the U.S./China Trade War into the Biden Administration

On May 19, 2021, the WSBA International Practice Section (IPS) held an annual Spring Event online.   A panel, which included lawyers from the United States and China, discussed the escalating competition between the United States and China: specifically, U.S. export control, import/customs, and sanctions laws; CFIUS review of Chinese investment in the United States; data security and online privacy; and intellectual property protection.  The panel also discussed how U.S. companies can navigate these issues contractually and provided insight into how the ever-evolving U.S./China geopolitical relationship will impact those relationships in the coming years.
