Preparing for change & workable solutions & clarifying complexity & poachers turned gamekeepers & different perspectives & shaping the rules & that’s Regulatory & Administrative with Bird & Bird
Our Regulatory & Administrative Practice helps domestic and international businesses, banks, financial institutions and a wide range of other organisations achieve maximum benefit from their dealings with regulatory bodies and national, regional or local governments.
We advise on cutting edge regulatory and competition issues, from the perspectives of universal service providers and other, new entrant operators.
We can also help you prepare for regulatory changes, manage your relationships with regulators and, where possible, help you to achieve regulatory change or clarification. We advise on licensing issues; business strategy in the light of regulatory requirements; and the approaches of regulatory authorities, both at EU level and at national levels across Europe and Asia. We represent clients as defendants, complainants or interveners in regulatory and competition regulatory investigations by EU and national authorities.
Our approach, whilst founded on an in-depth understanding of the legal and regulatory landscape, has a strongly practical and commercial focus. We give clear explanations of complex issues, robustly promote and defend your interests and add value wherever possible to your business.
