Regulatory

Regulation is perceived to advance important objectives for society and affects virtually every aspect of the economy. Governments, international organizations, independent agencies alike have been enacting or publishing regulations on virtually all sectors of economic activity, with a strong emphasis on utilities and companies that trade in goods or services of a general economic interest.

 

In addition to such general areas of regulation as competition, consumer protection, recovery and insolvency, corporate governance, corporate ethics, advertising, where we work alongside other practice areas within the Firm, our Regulatory practice has accumulated extensive experience from many years of involvement with many industries.
