Helping you navigate regulatory challenges worldwide
Regulation is complex and constantly shifting. Ensuring that your business understands regulatory implications and remains compliant is essential – not only to mitigate risk but also to realize substantial competitive advantages. Our global team is one of the largest and most experienced in the world. We’ll provide guidance, whatever your industry and wherever you operate.
The intersection of government and business is a highly complex space filled with statutes, administrative rules, regulations, and decisions – from local to international level. Regulatory bodies and enforcement agencies around the world are using their powers in increasingly expansive ways, often with serious consequences for businesses that are uninformed or unprepared. A proactive and comprehensive approach to regulation and compliance not only helps you avoid pitfalls but can also present significant opportunities.
We operate in 40+ countries and guide some of the world’s largest businesses on all aspects of risk, compliance, and regulatory law. We don’t just know the rules, we help write them: we shape the development of legislation, rules, and policies across the full range of legal and public policy matters.
“A combination of ‘extensive substantive knowledge, in-depth technical expertise, and astute political savvy’ makes DLA Piper … a go-to firm both for domestic as well as multi-jurisdictional matters.”
Our team includes former heads of government agencies, regulators, legislators, public policy advisors, and senior government officials with deep experience in government and the private sector. Our leading technical advisors include engineers, doctors, and other professionals who have an in-depth understanding of the technical elements underpinning policy. And we have in-house consultants with significant experience handling the media and public affairs challenges that can surround client legal matters.
We anticipate hurdles and develop solutions tailored to each client’s risk profile and business goals, whether this involves a “bet the company” litigation, a “buy or sell the company” transaction, or every-day regulatory challenges.
We see the global perspective. Clients value our knowledge and insights from our experience in key centers of business and government around the world, across jurisdictions and in all areas of regulation and public policy.
