and activities


is a boutique consultancy founded in 2004. The business was built upon a productive collaboration between Zoran Milosevic and Andrew Berry first established at DSTC, leveraging their complementary research and commercial experience.

Our name refers to a logic of permissions, prohibitions and obligations developed by philosopher Ernst Mally, also known as deontic logic. We use this logic extensively in our research and in the specification of policies and contracts. The term is derived from the Greek word deon meaning duty or obligation.
