"With the range of clients knocking at our door, we wanted to find a partner organisation that would furnish additional complementary services and geographic presence to provide the complete service portfolio for our client needs. Our current and prospective clients are operating in markets defined by technology-embracing regulation and need support in the highest integrity level. Therefore, we're happy to partner with T&P's excellent team and benefit together from its professional capacities in strategic communications, lobbying and reputation management. "

"I am more than delighted that COMPLOK Ltd, a new but already globally recognised brand, has decided to partner with us. Especially with the expertise of Mari-Liis and her team, I think that our portfolios and ability to integrate services as T&P & COMPLOK in the digital and financial sectors are more than compatible, not least with COMPLOK’s expertise in risk management, law enforcement and anti-money laundering. There is a sense of poetry that AML also stands for Ask Mari-Liis.!
