Space Law & Policy Solutions
A Legal and Policy Think-Tank That Provides Pragmatic Solutions to Address the Challenges of Developing the Final Frontier
As outer space development becomes more prolific so do the legal and policy issues that surround its use and exploitation. In the realm of new space, understanding the issues and their effect on both government and private sector space activities is critical.
Space Law & Policy Solutions was formed in 2012 to address the growing need of expertise in the realm of outer space law and policy not only for private entities but government entities as well. Government outer space activities and those of private industry dovetail with each other and together will form the core of future outer space development and security. However, too often outer space legal and policy issues are viewed through the lens of academia and the Beltway political environment and advice given is influenced by those perspectives.
The goal of Space Law & Policy Solutions is to provide its clients with an unbiased, no-nonsense point-of-view that they can rely on to understand their current position and to offer practical and pragmatic solutions versus academic solutions to address the legal and policy issues of outer space development at rates reasonable to the budget of a government agency, private company or non-governmental organization.
Issues such as outer space security, space debris, private space, real property rights, mineral resource rights require forward thinking to identify the thorny issues and overcome the legal and policy hurdles to outer space development.
Like the sextant, which was originally used by mariners to chart their course over the open ocean using the stars and evolved to guide aircraft and even spacecraft, the symbolism of the sextant as applied to the mission of Space Law & Policy Solutions is to make an accurate assessment of the legal and policy environment and plot a course through the issues in the final frontier to guide its clients to their destination.
