Regulatory and Compliance Disputes

The Practice

We advise regulatory bodies and private entities on contentious regulatory and compliance disputes and matters across a wide range of industry sectors, including:

  • energy and utilities,
  • transport and aviation,
  • life sciences,
  • telecommunications and broadcasting,
  • banking and financial services,
  • healthcare, and
  • professional services. 

We also advise on regulatory investigations including fitness and probity assessments, and on managing the often significant reputational risk involved.  We have a thorough understanding of regulatory and compliance issues relevant to the environment in which our clients operate. 

Our in-depth knowledge of these industry sectors and applicable regulations enhances our ability to develop innovative solutions for our clients that are geared towards preventing regulatory and compliance matters from becoming contentious.  Where such matters do become contentious, our experience in this area, combined with our expertise in the area of dispute resolution, enables us to advise our clients on how best to protect their interests, and to develop innovative solutions to the issues they face.

We have particular experience in dealing with and acting in litigation involving regulators such as the Commission for Communications Regulation (ComReg), the Commission for Energy Regulation (CER), and the Commission for Aviation Regulation (CAR).
