Technology companies are increasingly being asked challenging questions by governments and regulators around the world, as policy makers seek to understand their services better. Our experts have first-hand experience in evidence-gathering and can provide direct support to clients as they manage the process.

High-profile political and public scrutiny of technology companies’ activities is to be expected as innovation shapes economies and societies. Our insights can help clients prepare for key moments allowing them to credibly present to stakeholders, managing their reputation, and communicating their vision clearly.
A late change to an incoming prudential regime resulted in a client’s international operations being brought in scope, meaning the client would be required to hold significant additional capital. The client needed support to consider the options and make a decision about how best to mitigate the impact of this.
