Our Service Offerings

Monitor and Review of Legislative & Regulatory Changes

When local business norms are built on opaque relationships and when the line between politics and commerce is blurred at best, bad decisions can destroy an investment in a market or bring the potential for regulatory action. The FTI Consulting energy team is built on in-country experience and expertise supported by well-tried networks of outside sources at all levels. Our intelligence-led research helps clients navigate uncharted new market legislative and regulatory waters.

FCPA Vulnerability Advisory

There are many strategies for preparing to enter a new market. “Getting one’s foot in the door” often requires the assistance of a politically connected intermediary. The deep in-country legislative and regulatory experience of FTI Consulting energy professionals enables us to advise clients on whether such assistance is in violation of the Federal Corrupt Practices Act or other legislation. We often propose alternative courses of action that will avoid violations and fines. From forensic accounting to complex data and IT system analysis, FTI Consulting is a leading global provider of internal investigative work to companies concerned with fraud, corruption or improper vendor relationships.

Political Risk Advisory

Often upstream oil and gas companies are faced with developing strategies to shape and inform the political and policy environment, as well as with engaging key legislative, regulatory and executive decision makers on matters that include tax, trade, labour and regulatory oversight. The FTI Consulting energy team works to protect clients’ political and policy interests, providing baseline research, regular monitoring reports and tailored intelligence on specific critical issues. Our analysis is built on extensive in-county sources and specialised regional teams composed of former diplomats, journalists, military officers, political experts and qualified lawyers.
