Greenfield and brownfield investments



Any investment of a foreign company into assets, tangible or intangible, in another country is usually considered a foreign direct investment (FDI).


The foreign company purchases, leases or constructs assets in the host country either in form of new or existing facilities. These investments are called “greenfield” investments in case of a new and “brownfield” investments in case of an existing facility. The term greenfield comes from the fact that the foreign investor starts anew from the scratch with nothing else but a green field at the beginning. Both types of investments bring their own unique challenges in various fields with its advantages and disadvantages.


Rödl & Partner with its inter-disciplinary approach, global reach and particularly strong presence among family businesses is perfectly suited as the one-stop-shop for supporting foreign investors in Lithuania.
