Washington, D.C. — Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP today announces it has launched Assureg (Assurance + Regulation), a new compliance and regulatory consulting division providing clients with tailored, bespoke compliance solutions overseen by the firm’s attorneys.

Assureg’s mission is to provide the industry with practical, actionable advice in regulatory matters with the much-needed protection of attorney-client privilege and competitive, flexible pricing.
Assureg operates at the intersection of regulation and innovation with leadership that includes the chairs of Am Law 100 financial services regulatory and FinTech legal practices, Chambers-rated attorneys, former general counsels, senior enforcement attorneys, and litigators, in addition to former C-suite executives with financial services, banking, and compliance experience.

The team regularly advises on discrete, complex regulatory compliance issues, in addition to providing solutions for early-stage startups and multinational clients through high-stakes growth strategies, product innovation, and digital transformation. Assureg’s business model also provides for the support of and partnership with third-party consultants on compliance-related engagements where discrete legal issues arise or where volume-based and scalable solutions add value to the consultants’ engagement.

Stull. “Our advisors are both innovative and entrepreneurial with deep experience navigating novel regulatory frameworks.
