Regulatory Strategy

For companies subject to economic regulation, regulatory engagement is an ongoing requirement. Companies that play the game well know how regulators think, anticipate future developments and understand the policy and political motivations behind regulatory decisions. They also connect those factors to their own corporate strategy.

We bring our experience at the most senior levels within regulatory agencies to help our clients develop and implement effective regulatory strategies that support wider corporate objectives. We also help them build effective engagement strategies based on a thorough understanding of the DNA of the different agencies and the views and approaches of key individuals.

Flint works with companies and investors to help them navigate and shape regulation:

  • Understanding future regulatory developments: getting under the skin of regulatory announcements, identifying risks, opportunities, evidence gaps and scope to influence.
  • Evaluation of strategic options: identifying the best approaches for regulatory engagement either on single issues or across the full range of a regulators’ activities.
  • Linking regulation to wider corporate strategy: identifying the impact both of regulation on corporate strategy and of strategic choices on future regulation.
  • Effective engagement: getting the right information to the right people at the right time – both within regulators and more widely – and constantly learning from each encounter.

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