Public law and regulation can make or break any business or transaction. Our government relations and public policy (GRPP) practice helps clients promote policy change, shape draft legislation and manage regulatory risk. We work with clients through the entire legislative process, from identifying initial objectives to drafting new law and from implementing legislation to application and enforcement.

Efficient, available and motivated team. Excellent responsiveness and quality production.Legal 500 EMEA, 2022

Our practice includes lawyers and lobbyists with experience in government and as regulators worldwide. We work across jurisdictions with hubs in Brussels, London and Washington, DC and serve clients including agribusinesses, asset managers, banks, commodity merchandisers, financial markets infrastructure, financial sector industry groups, investment firms, transport groups, utilities, an international financial institution and a US self-regulatory organization.

Our GRPP practice is also an integral part of our risk advisory offering and supports our work for clients in areas including dispute resolution and litigation, and projects. In 2017, Norton Rose Fulbright combined with Chadbourne and Parke, an international law firm with deep roots in New York and Washington, DC, and with more than a century of practice. This has significantly strengthened our client offering in key sectors including government relations and public policy and further expanded our jurisdictional reach.

Our lawyers worldwide advise federal and national, regional and local government and public authorities in the development of policies and legislation and on the enforcement of regulation. We assist government clients in all matters of litigation including on government procurement disputes, public corruption investigations and public inquiries.
