    Top in Tech: Blair Levin on the past and future of US tech regulation

    Few people have been as pivotal in the history of US tech and telecom regulation as Blair Levin.
    Levin served as chief of staff in the Federal Communications Commission during the Clinton administration and led the development of the National Broadband Plan under President Obama. Today, he's the Executive Director of the Gig.U Project, which looks to accelerate the US deployment of next-generation networks.
    In this month's Top in Tech in-conversation, Senior Practice Director Conan D'Arcy speaks to Levin about the past and future of US telecom regulation, and how the calculus may be changing following a decision by the Supreme Court that may limit the power of regulators across the federal government. Could the US be heading towards a regulation model more reminiscent of the EU?
    'Top in Tech' is a production of Global Counsel, a strategic advisory business headquartered in London with offices across the world.

    The geopolitics of: infrastructure

    The geopolitics of: infrastructure

    For many living in the US and the UK, encountering crumbling and inadequate infrastructure is a daily part of life. Yet, the tide may be turning. Last month's G20 Summit saw a large commitment to international infrastructure investment, and the $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is a rare bipartisan victory for US President Joe Biden. Why is infrastructure suddenly at the forefront after years of neglect, and, considering the competition between the Western and Chinese models of infrastructure investment, how does it tie into broader geopolitical struggles?
    In this episode of our Geopolitics miniseries, Practice Director Jon Garvie is joined by Ali Miraj, Managing Director of Infrastructure Finance at ING and a former Conservative Party adviser. They talk through the infrastructure gap in the developing world, the shifting conversation around investment, and the connection between infrastructure and geopolitical competition.

    How will Integrated Care Systems address NHS workforce issues?

    How will Integrated Care Systems address NHS workforce issues?

    Welcome to the first episode of a new mini-series exploring the NHS's adoption of Integrated Care Systems, presented by the Global Counsel Health and Life Sciences practice.
    As part of the NHS Long-Term Plan in 2019, plans were announced for all areas of England to become part of Integrated Care Systems (also referred to as ICSs). ICSs promise to bring down barriers to care and allow organisations to work together to better improve the health of their community.
    Four years after this initial announcement, 2022 has not only seen 42 ICSs established across England on a statutory basis, but the world has witnessed a global pandemic that has shaken up health systems worldwide. One of the many outcomes of the virus is a near burnt-out health workforce, which is operating with high vacancies across the system. How will the arrival of ICSs change the health workforce of England?
    To discuss this and more, Senior Associate Rosie Hill is joined by Dr Navina Evans, CEO of Health Education England and Chief Workforce Officer at NHS England; Matthew Swindells, the former Deputy CEO at NHS England, Sim Scavazza, a non-executive director at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust and Dr Harpreet Sood, practising GP and board member at Health Education England.
    Stay tuned for episodes in the coming weeks exploring the impact of ICSs on inequality, digital healthcare, and more.
