Policy and governance
The importance of government rules and regulations for industries and markets makes the interface between the public and the private sectors increasingly important. We assist our clients in this respect in:
- advising regulatory bodies on the drafting, interpretation and implementation of their legislative powers as well as on their decision-making and governance processes, including the interaction between the international and European and the federal/regional/local levels of government;
- identifying and analyzing for our private clients public policy trends as well as (anticipated) legislative and regulatory proposals;
- investigating alternatives to regulation (soft law and self-regulation solutions, policy agreements, transactional government and so on);
- representing our clients before regulatory bodies or individual lawmakers as well as (administrative and constitutional) courts.
