We are unusual in having a dedicated regulation and competition practice at the heart of the business, advising across the commercial and public sectors.


Our regulation practice has a long track record in advising clients as diverse as FTSE 100 utility providers, government economic regulators and professional bodies. We are delighted to have been involved in the creation of new bodies and organisations, and in strengthening leadership teams for those well-established.

Our experience and networks, and our unusual combination of strong private and public sector practices, put us in a uniquely strong position to be able to identify leading individuals, in the UK and beyond.
