RLS Consulting draws on practical knowledge of developing legal systems and private sector contexts to advise leading businesses, governments, non-governmental organizations, and nonprofits.

RLS takes a collective approach to meeting our clients’ and projects’ needs, combining our international legal experience with our practical knowledge of transitional and developing legal and political systems. As lawyers with experience in jurisdictions from New York to Cape Town to Kabul, we analyze problems contextually, taking into account local realities.

RLS has advised on projects for the Government of Afghanistan, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and many other international development companies on issues ranging from the growth of small and medium enterprises, to the development of lending institutions, to zoning land policy.
