INTERNATIONAL REGULATORY REGIMES
Corporate strategy continues to evolve in response to market pressures, growing regulatory complexity and increased political interventionism. As national and supranational competition authorities become more active, corporate decision makers face unprecedented layers of uncertainty, delayed plans and unforeseen risks.
Today’s rapidly proliferating requirements, enforcement practices, poorly motivated decisions by authorities and a number of other factors pose serious obstacles for the conduct of international business. Our attorneys have experience assisting clients navigating those obstacles and to protect the company’s legitimate business interests.
Each of our attorneys have on-the-ground experience cultivating relationships with global regulators, sovereign regimes and have successfully executed agreements between both private enterprises and government-owned consortium. Our founder, assisted the board of directors of the Dubai International Financial Center in refining and finalizing the first set of regulations governing the Dubai International Financial Exchange (DIFX, renamed Nasdaq Dubai) and practiced in other areas of the MENA region and Gulf States advising financial institutions owned by sovereign wealth funds and the UAE Royal Family.
Our attorneys have also worked in China offices of their former law firms assisting on cross-border transactions between private companies and government-owned consortia. Based upon lessons learned during on our experience in the region, members of our transactional teams have published scholarly articles in Asian Legal Journals, including "Material Adverse Change (MAC) Clauses" in China Deal Maker.
