NRF Horizon Scanner
Early assessment of upcoming changes to law and regulation
A tailored service tracking regions and topics specific to your business with all relevant changes in law and regulation explained and prioritised for action
Global businesses must navigate complex, changing laws and regulations to satisfy regulators, customers and investors. This increasing complexity demands a new approach to horizon scanning or else businesses face increased regulatory scrutiny, reputational harm, large fines and criminal prosecution. Our research shows that most organisations waste time and money on a risky, unstructured approach to horizon scanning, relying on information from disparate sources without the accompanying analysis, interpretation, and structure necessary to assess the impact on their operations.
Horizon Scanning is not new, but it’s a bigger challenge than ever.
Complex laws and regulations are constantly evolving and there is more scrutiny and pressure to comply.
The consequences of missing changes in law can be severe, risking major costs and reputational damage.
AI can’t solve this challenge yet, so organisations sign up to multiple alerts to keep track. In house lawyers are flooded with emails, many not relevant, so finding what’s important is difficult. And these alerts don’t explain the impact of the change to the business.
In house lawyers spend lots of time trying to keep up to date but still worry they will miss something important.
That’s why we built NRF Horizon Scanner.
Select your jurisdictions and areas of law and receive only relevant alerts, all written by our global network of lawyers with industry expertise who explain the impact and priority of the change to your business.
Receive alerts by email at the frequency you choose, and revisit this information when you need via your secure online portal where you can search, filter and report.

Should in house legal be investing in contract automation technologies?
If someone had said 20 years ago that you could carry a device with you to work whilst commuting or to watch your favourite shows, we might have laughed. But with such a fast-moving technology industry, we look at the work that we do differently. If something can be automated, it should be, as long as there are efficiencies to gain when measured against the effort to make the change.
