The Government Consulting team is part of PwC Legal ME LLP, serving the Middle East with a prime focus on the UAE and Saudi Arabia. We work closely with PwC across various industries and sectors in providing legal and regulatory consultancy services to our clients, helping them solve their important problems.
We work with government leaders to enhance public services, support business growth, and people’s prosperity by working diligently and creatively on country and sector specific legal infrastructure.
We partner with policy makers and decision takers to upgrade their legal and regulatory ecosystem to adapt to shifting economies, tighter budgets, emerging trends, and innovative breakthroughs.
We also bring insights and international expertise through benchmarking and comparative analysis. Having access to PwC Legal global network of 185 jurisdictions worldwide enables us to tap into leading latest legal trends and bring best practices to our clients customised to their very own needs and fitting smoothly into national ecosystems.
We also conduct stakeholder engagement and solicitation exercises to bring in business and sector insights to policy makers and legislatures. These take account of legislative and regulatory impacts on those entities and sectors captured by their jurisdiction.
We know what it takes to put vision and strategy into polices and binding legal instruments that will not only enable implementation but will also enable accountability and compliance. Successful results can be achieved if there is a commitment and consensus to change, which in many ways can only be regulated through binding legal instruments at national and state levels. We have worked on the implementation of new regulatory rules, new economic strategies and setting up new legal entities for the delivery of emerging roles.
We assess legal mandates and capacities and advise on functions required to implement these mandates. We also advise on the legal requirements for mergers or areas of separation of legal mandates within government or state owned entities.
We have worked on regulatory-service provision spin offs, corporatisations and other forms of legal entity and mandate restructuring. We also provide the required legal documentation for the implementation of a proposed approach.
We assess and evaluate current laws, regulations and contractual instruments, and benchmark these against best international practices and key emerging developments, identifying gaps, challenges and opportunities. We provide analysis on the options for improvements and reform, map key stakeholders and decision makers to the options and support the development of a case for the proposed changes.
