Some areas of industry are regarded as especially important to public welfare or seen to pose a particular risk to consumers and other stakeholders, such that they are subject to sector-specific operational regulation and control. In a fast-moving political and socio-economic landscape, that regulation is becoming increasingly complex and fluid. We have a team of regulatory specialists with genuine sector expertise, who can guide you through these regimes, and ensure your business interests and reputation are protected.
Our team’s experience comes from the range of sectors where we advise on both standalone matters and complex transactions. This includes:
- energy and infrastructure
- life sciences
- food and licensed premises.
Being well versed in each of these areas (and the associated operational complexities) means the team members can easily apply their knowledge to your real-world situations.
Our team has extensive transactional know-how, which sets it apart from our competitors. Regulatory issues that arise during a transaction can be especially challenging, particularly where timetables are short and confidentiality paramount. By identifying the genuinely material issues and closing them out (whether acting on buy-side or sell-side) we take a dynamic approach to delivering lasting solutions. Building relationships with regulators and other key stakeholders is key and enormously beneficial for our clients.
Energy and infrastructure is a particular area of expertise. Team members have provided regulatory advice on some of the most significant and innovative developments in the last decade, from major water and sewerage infrastructure, and energy and heat distribution and supply businesses, through to nuclear plants and fracking. Being at the forefront of these industries is important in ensuring we can advise you on long term strategies.
Bringing together wider expertise from our Transactional, Contracts and Planning teams, we deliver an experienced, capable and streamlined projects offering. Providing robust, insightful and pragmatic support guarantees you stay compliant and prepared for the future.
