While we are always adapting to meet the needs of our clients, some of our specialties include:
(1) International Trends in Government Regulation - We seek to understand how international policymakers approach some of the core business concerns of the day, focusing on matters related to intellectual property, competition, security of data flows, and consumer information management.
(2) Strategic Considerations - When crafting a comprehensive plan of engagement, we fully account for the risk willingness of the client balanced with the the political sensitivities of policymaker(s).
(3) Partnerships and Coalitions - We have experience both identifying, forming, and running partnerships and coalitions around policy initiatives to reinforce the scope and importance of proposed policy changes.
(4) Emerging Technology Issues - We have extensive experience working with traditional industries with increasingly technology focused products to craft innovation focused policy initiatives.
We craft and help implement policy initiatives that are sensitive to the risk level of the client while engaging in a dialogue with policymakers that can effectuate the intended goals.
We have experience negotiating compromises and can serve as unique resource for mediation and crisis management of matters implicating policy shifts.
We can generate thoughtful and substantive content that identifies and explains potential regulatory barriers to market expansion, and how to navigate them.
New / early stage companies increasingly seek to disrupt historically staid industries. This disruption presents distinct challenges that companies, especially those with limited financial and human assets, must answer to achieve success. We have extensive experience crafting strategies for startups and venture firms to understand and plan for the dynamics and limitations of these early stages.
We work with our clients to identify international institutions, business ventures and public policy leaders as potential policy partners, bearing in mind their interests and how we might work together for a common goal.
We also have extensive experience in proactively building new coalitions and associations to build up policy initiatives. We view these entities as a continually evolving campaign and we work to identify emerging stakeholders who have the potential to support common interests.
We understand the value of information; in receiving, having, and sharing it. We work with our clients to understand fully the substantive nature of their policy concerns and then comprehensively monitor the policy and political environment for any information that may have an impact on their efforts.
