Legislative and Regulatory Advocacy Services
We are often asked by clients to do background papers, studies, and summaries of major public policy issues to help them plan for future and participate in public policy discussions. This work is usually an adjunct to our monitoring, reporting, and analysis services. Our assistance is sought by companies and/or trade associations to help them respond to specific public policy issues that affect them. We assist in identifying the critical elements for discussion, the business and political “sacred cows,” and the points on which consensus are likely to be reached.
Also, our professional staff will provide introductions to key policy makers in the Diet, in the Administration, and in the regulatory agencies. The Japan’s public policy community will be a key focus of personal contacts. By establishing a personal relationship with those individuals, you will open channels of direct communication that can be called upon as needed to understand the dynamics of change, to express your views, and to influence decisions.
