Disruptive businesses often face regulations that were written when nobody envisaged their business models and which enshrine old ways of doing things. Regulation is frequently used by incumbents as a defensive weapon against new entrants.
Leadership teams in young, innovative companies are deeply focused on growth. While still small, they may adeptly avoid regulatory scrutiny. But as they grow, especially if they are disruptive, they may begin to draw the attention of regulators, and the concerted efforts of incumbents. This can divert entrepreneurial attention, and potentially undermine the chance for a successful IPO.
Using our understanding of regulators, central government and city authorities, we help to design thoughtful, pre-emptive strategies for handling regulation in a way that integrates with ambitious growth plans.
Our clients can keep their focus on what they’re best at: growing their businesses.
