Deontea Ltd understands the principal challenges an organisation has to overcome where facing a new regulatory initiative or a fundamental change in the geopolitical landscape. While the first comment is often: Another one! Will it ever stop? Most organisations tend to quickly turn towards their compliance teams to resolve the issue, who in turn contact the firm’s legal counsel for advice. A long-standing habit inherited from the time when financial regulations where still in their childhood compared to nowadays and the main risks faced by firms were mainly of a legal nature. That ship has sailed and a legal answer to a regulatory issue is often inadequate as it mainly addresses the high-level rules without providing actionable recommendations. Whilst some issues are easy to solve other are much more complex and have far reaching consequences on
the firm business operations and future developments. Deontea can help you navigate the complexity of the regulatory world and its challenges
pragmatically and effectively: our thinking is that our clients deserve:
Too often, advice or opinions provided are generic, and worst, do not give any answers, but only extremely well documented legal analysis of applicable rules or requirements, leaving the firm even more confused than before. Another unintended consequence that cannot be disregarded is the time slippage firms have to face before being able to plan ahead and move forward. We think that our clients deserve answers: when we provide advice, we give our clients practical answers to their questions. When asked what a provision means, we answer what it means for them, and how to factor it in their business strategy.
