Regulatory risk management

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.

Case Study Title

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