We support you in promoting legitimate business interests in a professional and ethical manner.
Corporate affairs otherwise also known as Public Affairs, Government Relations, Policy Advocacy or Lobbying is perhaps one of the most misunderstood or misused tools of engaging government to promote business interests. Why is it misunderstood?
Very often the actions of a few driven to promote vested interests that seek to provide an unfair competitive advantage or favour a corporation at the cost of honest taxpayers or simply indulge in corrupt practices to advance one’s business have attracted disproportionate attention and tainted the good work of many who professionally and ethically engage government on behalf of businesses.
At Astrum, our Corporate Affairs Advisory team comprises of policy experts across diverse sectors, former bureaucrats, lawyers and advocacy specialists, skilled and proficient to advise CXOs on the impact of political and policy developments and to strategically position their businesses in this evolving context. We help shape the corporate affairs strategy of our clients including support in securing and promoting legitimate business interests by engaging policy makers, regulators and key influencers in an ethical manner.
- Government Relations
The evolving political and policy landscape not only requires companies to constantly reassess their current business, but also seek avenues for growth. It is important therefore to develop insights into the prevailing policy environment and its impact on business. Our counsellors monitor the policy and regulatory environment to help you stay ahead and ethically promote legitimate interests to secure your licence to operate and create growth opportunities.
- Regulatory Affairs
The rapid growth of technology, economy and the society in India has resulted in the need for almost a constant upgrade and update of regulation across many sections of industry, such as healthcare, media and entertainment, technology, financial services, telecom, mobility, to name a few. Companies struggle to keep abreast with this change as regulators walk the tight rope to balance the needs of the industry and that of their constituents, the citizens of India. Our team of regulatory experts and legal counsellors help clients meet their regulatory compliance requirements, avoiding penal action from government or any unnecessary litigation.
Our counsellors also work closely with the regulatory team to help you engage with regulators for a constructive dialogue to build mutual understanding and find opportunities to collaborate to ensure a progressive and a vibrant business environment that drives economic growth whilst protecting the citizens.
