We help clients navigate the U.S. and European political spheres.
Societal and political developments have a decisive impact on business. That’s why it’s critical to maintain a steady dialogue with decision makers and policy influencers – particularly in a digitally connected and data-driven world where societal, political, and business trends require a strategic, integrated approach to communications.
We advise clients on navigating the political spheres of influence, helping them protect their reputation and interests in the U.S. and Europe. Whether in Berlin, Brussels, London, Stockholm, Washington D.C., or Paris, we offer the access, insights, and intelligence required to make an impact in relevant policy circles.
Our team draws on long-term experience. Many have held governmental office, acted as chiefs of staff, served as senior advisors to policymakers, or worked as journalists with a focus on politics.
Access, Insight, and Intelligence
Political developments and regulatory initiatives need to be monitored and analyzed constantly to help businesses assess risks and opportunities. By combining policy expertise and insights with digital tools and data-based research, we provide reliable intelligence to help clients stay ahead of developments.
Stakeholder Engagement and Campaigning
Whether it is a new investment, product launch, restructuring, or expansion, success often depends on building and managing stakeholder relationships. We employ our understanding of the political decision-making process, our knowledge of the stakeholder, and our insight tools to craft positioning, engagement, and campaigning strategies.
Changes in the regulatory framework, amendments in legislation, and political disarray can impact a company’s business and the way it operates. We advise clients regarding legislative processes and political decision-making from the beginning of an initiative to its final implementation.
Transactional Public Affairs
Capital market transactions such as privatizations, IPOs, or M&A can have political implications at the national and EU level. Active communication and the early involvement of political decision-makers can be essential for the success of a transaction. We help clients develop and implement strategies to address consequences of a transaction for stakeholders, generating support or mitigating potential concerns.
EU regulation is of paramount importance for setting the framework in which companies can operate in Europe. We advise clients in a complex environment, providing intelligence, strategy development, policy advice, and advocacy, including stakeholder engagement and outreach to policymakers at EU and Member State level.
