Vertex supports its clients in some of the world’s most highly regulated industries. We are experts in local, state, provincial, federal and international regulatory markets. Our in-depth knowledge and adaptable approach support our clients by identifying risks, developing strategies, and creating timelines for obtaining realistic but streamlined approvals. Project risks are minimized by working with our diverse team as we partner with proponents to determine optimal routing and siting options, mitigate stakeholder concerns, and engage with regulators.
At Vertex, navigating these complex regulations is only a single aspect of our expertise as we work closely with various clients (industry, NGO’s, not for profits and Indigenous communities) to support access to government funding programs, particularly those programs related to emerging regulations and social issues.
Supported by our extensive experience and our ability to field execute regulatory approval projects, our advisory team will support the development of fit-for-purpose regulatory strategies for each client and client project. Our experience is diverse across all sectors and ranges from broad municipal approvals to state, provincial and federal guidelines. Recent projects include:
- Municipal regulatory advisory on real estate and telecommunications approvals
- Provincial regulatory advice on mining and aggregate developments
- Agricultural industry support on peat operations
- Industrial support on state, provincial and federal projects; and
- Energy industry support including pipelines, large surface developments and facilities in accordance with various regulatory frame works including interstate and inter-provincial governance bodies.
Our advisory practice includes a deep understanding of government funding programs that can support compliance to emerging regulations, government programs and can help address emerging social or environmental issues. Our team works with customers to understand these programs, integrate them into financial compliance models. The Vertex team reviews new and existing regulations to develop funding strategies designed to maximize the benefits available to our partners and the objectives of the funding program. Vertex has extensive experience in provincial oil and gas reclamation funding (SRP, ASCP, DSRP), Emissions funding (AMEP, MAP), and innovative technology funding.
