Flint helps portfolio companies seize political and regulatory opportunities and address risks.
Identifying and seizing investment opportunities increasingly requires a pro-active and lateral approach, involving policy and fiscal tools can help to unlock capital in areas where there is strong political will to introduce new investment.
Ambitious climate, innovation and economic growth targets and ever-evolving policy, regulatory and political objectives present a range of opportunities for investment, particularly in new technologies and nascent markets.
We provide expert advice on all aspects of transactions clearance, including competition, national security and public interest. We help our clients to achieve clearance rapidly and in a way that maximises commercial outcomes.
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.
