Protecting freedom to operate and navigating global change
The global economy is increasingly difficult to maneuver. Sovereigns are flexing their authority on tax and policy regulation, and nationalism is resurging around the world. Unstable multilateralism, challenging supply chains, and global realignment of trade are all inevitable terms of engagement. Organizations lacking the comprehensive infrastructure and diverse expertise that modern business requires often rely on a multitude of resources and firms to address today’s exhaustive legal, social, and government relations issues. This approach leads to a disjointed strategy, inefficiencies, and a loss of competitive advantage.
Ankura helps clients engage with governments, NGOs/multilaterals, activists, and regulatory bodies to address operating/alignment challenges arising from nationalism and global competition. We lead clients through public disclosures and transactions within the private and capital markets, and help manage their reputation through critical moments of change, challenge, or opportunity.
