The business is becoming increasingly complex. The way of engaging in the political and law-making process can be critical to the success of business. We can bring a strong combination of legal and policy expertise which is a key asset in enabling us to provide distinguished and strategic advice to our client in order to achieve their goals.
Regulated industries such as technology, media, communication, financial services and energy are loco industries and vital for the economy. As SRP-Legal, we are the best interface between regulators and the businesses they regulate. We provide tailored strategic public policy advice on the business implications of legislation and regulation.
We work with our clients to develop innovative and effective strategies to respond to the opportunities and challenges presented by governmental institutions in Turkey and in the Region, and are ideally placed to help companies review and revise their public policy strategies to take account of the devolved structures in Turkey and the Region. Because we take time to understand our clients business and goals, we help them to see the policy-making process as it relates to them, and to appreciate the political climate. We also help clients to develop their network of stakeholders, and build relationships with the government officials and agencies, non-governmental organizations and think tanks who all have a role in shaping the policy.
