Economic Advice and Evidence Building

Regulatory submissions are only as good as the arguments they contain. In the case of economic regulation and antitrust, that means getting the economics right, as well as assembling the right evidence and understanding the broader political and policy context.

Our team of expert economists has designed and developed the economic arguments to support regulatory decision-making in all of the major regulated sectors in the UK and the EU. We have worked at senior levels in multiple regulatory agencies and understand how economic arguments interface with wider political, policy, legal and technical considerations. We know what evidence is needed to support those arguments and how to present that evidence so that it is easily understood by the senior decision-makers who matter. We use that experience to help our clients deploy arguments that will achieve the outcomes they seek.

Flint works with companies and investors to help them put their cases across effectively and powerfully:

  • Sound economic argumentation: linking economic theory to practical reality to make cases that land effectively and fully recognise wider political and policy objectives
  • Synthesise economic analysis: drawing together diverse and often highly technical analyses to make concise, persuasive and robust arguments that are accessible to a wider audience
  • Align economic, policy, legal and technical arguments: blending economic assessment with wider considerations, working with other advisors to secure maximum effectiveness
  • Assembling and presenting the right evidence: ensuring that economic arguments are properly backed up and can be understood and relied upon by decision-makers.

We would be delighted to discuss how Flint could support your business.
