Our Values

We believe that all businesses deserve to be able to compete fairly. We are here to help you make sure your business has the support you need to do that and to thrive in the regulatory state.

Government regulation of the economy has never been as broad or as deep: the opportunities and challenges this creates can have a significant impact not only on profitability but also on your overall business strategy.

We set up Sheppard | Co with the aim of providing high quality, expert support to businesses of all kinds on accessible terms. We look to work closely with you to understand your needs and welcome the opportunity to work alongside your existing advisers where there is a need for our specialist skills.

Predicting and planning for the impact of regulation is better than trying to cure the effects of regulatory enforcement. Our background, combining public and private sector experience, helps us help you look forward with greater certainty and sensibly manage regulatory risk in your sector. We aim to provide you with creative but workable and ‘light touch’ solutions to reduce regulatory risk to a level acceptable to you.

And we strongly believe that others should be held to the same standards as you are. Crafting an effective complaint to a regulator or bringing an action to ensure you are compensated for the harm done to you by the unlawful commercial actions of your competitors is very much part of what we do.

Competition and regulatory law – applied properly – should benefit not only the economy as a whole, but also all fair dealing businesses in it. We want to help make sure that happens.
