Practice Group
Regulatory

As an associate in our Public Law and Policy practice, Elina advises on the synergy between business and government.  Elina assists clients that operate in a range of heavily regulated industry sectors in the UK and EU on their engagement with government and regulators in the face of new laws, regulations and policy that affect them.  Her practice focuses on administrative and public law, commercial judicial review, EU law, commercial human rights, information rights and public and parliamentary affairs.  

While Elina has particular experience of litigation, she advises on both contentious and advisory matters and recognises that a challenge through the courts is often an expensive and time-consuming remedy of last resort. She works pragmatically and strategically with her clients to achieve their objectives, including through constructive and timely dialogue with government and regulators.  

After qualification, Elina gained experience of litigating in the financial services sector during a six month secondment to Standard Chartered Bank.

The team is "Particularly adept at advising businesses and public bodies on judicial review applications, constitutional issues and regulatory challenges."
