Regulation

We work with regulators and governments to develop policies or help operators to influence them.

Our consultants help regulators to undertake, and operators to respond to, consultations of all kinds, from costing methodologies and market analyses, right through to forward-looking sector studies.

We develop and audit cost models for both regulators and regulated firms. We identify key issues in regulatory processes, and critically appraise comparative benchmarking data.
