Policy analysis and insight

Recent years have seen an accelerated pace of policy and regulatory activity in the tech space, in response to the so-called ‘Techlash’. We help our clients to anticipate and understand these trends in their core markets of operation, with a focus on commercial implications. This includes a wide scope of activity including providing insights on the likely trajectory of emerging draft legislation, anticipating investigations by regulatory authorities, and unpacking potential opportunities in initiatives led by local authorities.

Building on our insights and analysis, we support our clients in becoming thought leaders, thereby elevating conversations with policymakers and regulators while also helping them develop a strong reputation within their industry. This ranges from drafting op-eds and speeches, through to supporting clients in publishing original research and white papers.

We advise clients throughout their engagement with the policymaking process.
