In jurisdictions where the rule of law is weak, or favors the politically powerful, companies may need to have other tools than litigation in their arsenal to protect their local business interests. Fara Group’s solutions can go beyond what is often provided by traditional legal counsel but never put the client in breach of the law. As examples to this customized approach, gaining leverage in a local setting may involve making the broader community a beneficiary of a company’s success through well-planned social responsibility initiatives or elevating the reputational risk of its adversaries. The prospects for gaining leverage vary widely between countries and industries. Fara Group has two decades of experience in devising innovative solutions to mitigate political and other risks inherent to emerging markets.
