Within a broad public law and regulatory practice, Craig specialises in infrastructure regulation, including the aviation, energy and telecommunications sectors.
He has a detailed understanding of Government and Parliament processes, having previously worked in Parliament, and has helped a broad range of clients on matters involving policy, law reform, design and implementation of new regulatory regimes, and regulatory compliance. This diverse skill set makes Craig invaluable to clients seeking to operate and mitigate risk in complex regulatory environments, and who require guidance on strategic engagement with Ministers, local and central government politicians, select committees, regulators and officials.
