The UK’s National Security & Investment Act

May 12, 2021

The UK’s National Security and Investment Act 2021 received Royal Assent on 29 April 2021 and is expected to “commence” at the end of 2021, with retrospective application to transactions occurring since 12 November 2020. The Act provides the UK Government with the statutory power to review and potentially block or unwind M&A transactions based on national security. Investments over 25% in businesses within 17 specified sensitive sectors will be void unless notified and approved. The Secretary of State will have broad powers to review other transactions posing a national security concern for up to 5 years after closing, while parties to those transactions will have the right to make a voluntary notification (reducing the period within which the transactions may be reviewed to 6 months).

COVID-19 Update: Decision Striking Down CDC Federal Eviction Moratorium Temporarily Stayed

May 11, 2021

On May 5, 2021, the United States District Court for the District of Columbia (“DC Court”) vacated a nationwide eviction moratorium order issued by the Centers for Disease Control (“CDC”) to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in Alabama Association of Realtors, et al. v. United States Department of Health and Human Services, et al. (the “Decision”).  The DC Court found that the CDC exceeded its authority in issuing such moratorium on nationwide evictions of rental properties and that the CDC Order should be set aside.  The Decision was immediately appealed by the Justice Department on behalf of the CDC and the ruling has been stayed pending such appeal.
