GR consulting and lobbying

Government relation (GR) is the establishment and maintenance of partnerships with public authorities. This area is increasingly being used by successful Russian companies., becoming part of strategic planning in business.

Do you think, that competitors are much more successful and achieve their goals with less effort, because they have powerful friends, which open many doors? The secret lies in building the right communications with partners, competitors and, of course, state.

Some think about GR-consulting, as well as the study of current trends in the relevant / sectoral legislation and existing support measures only after, how competitors force them out of the market or create difficult obstacles to doing business. Undoubtedly, this indicates a slight foresight.

The level of interaction with the state will be different depending on the scope of the business and the size of the company, but even a small company should at least know, what changes in legislation, in regulation, in CND may occur in the near future. It is important to be aware of those perks, what they can count on, to get the coveted advantage. For lobbying them, surely, have to unite, which is not always possible, but even the use of potential preferences can already open up new perspectives.

For the most part, GR is the task of medium and large businesses, especially, if it tends to scale. In particular, it is important to form a positive attitude of the authorities to a specific area of ​​activity and development plans (for example, entering a new region), as well as an impeccable business reputation among government officials. When moving to another level, this becomes relevant for small businesses in priority sectors of the economy.. It is also important to correctly present the public, economic and state significance of the company, in order to receive preferences provided by the Government.

Then you just have to put up with and complain about the imperfection of the legislation and the inaction of law enforcement agencies, or raise the issue of the dangers of such unscrupulous competitors for consumers, who receive services or goods, endangering their lives, and for the state, who receive less income from tax deductions.
