GK's Global Network
GK provided due diligence on the acquisition of a global environmental consultancy. We provided clarity on the trajectory of relevant global policy trends, from international efforts to tackle climate change and macroeconomic shifts affecting the oil, gas and raw materials sectors through engaging with high level stakeholders at the UN, OECD and G8. Our network of affiliates allowed us to provide a comprehensive overview of environmental regulation in a range of domestic markets, including China, Australia and the United States.
GK assisted an investor in the hop-on, hop-off tourist bus market, looking at the detailed regulatory environment in major cities such as London and Paris. Using our expert partners on the ground, we covered a range of issues to help the investor get comfortable with the wide range of local regulatory regimes the business was exposed to.
GK provided diligence on the sale of a global consumer financial services company with operations in 31 countries. GK assessed key political, policy and regulatory trends in a number of core markets, from China and Hong Kong to the European Union. With an ever more complex tax and finance environment globally, GK was able to get to the heart of what was driving political decision making across and within many different jurisdictions, providing clarity and certainty for potential investors.
