We help businesses and investors understand, manage, and mitigate regulatory risk to maximise opportunity.
Flint is a multinational team of business advisers with experience working at the most senior levels in UK and European governments, regulators, competition bodies, political parties, and the private sector. Where politics and regulation collide, we understand complex regulatory regimes, the influence of politics on regulation, and how this can affect a range of commercial models. We help businesses identify issues upstream, navigate regulatory change, and build relationships based on mutual trust with their regulators, to ensure the best possible returns.
We have expertise in a wide range of regulatory models. Our experts help clients manage risk from existing and developing regulation.
We stay abreast of regulatory developments across all major sectors, so that clients can act early to ensure their voice is heard.
We help clients with matters of compliance, audit and assurance, standards, and best practice, in line with their respective regulatory regime.
The best relationships between regulated businesses and regulators are constructive and based on trust – we help clients achieve them.
Whether gradual or structural, we prepare clients for regulatory change and equip them to defend [their commercial interests] and create new opportunities.

The client needed support to consider the options and make a decision about how best to mitigate the impact of this.
