Regulatory & Public Affairs

We provide strategic policy advice to help you achieve your goals in highly regulated sectors.

In an EU environment with 24 official languages and 27 Member States, how do you make sure the voice of your business is heard above all the noise?

Our market-leading legal and regulatory expertise provides creative, timely and pragmatic advice in a public affairs context. We work at the intersection of politics, bureaucracy, and business reality. We have the experience your organisation needs to navigate the complex decision-making processes.

We understand that legislation is not made in a political vacuum but is influenced by the broader political context. We work across our global offices as one team to provide you with a seamless, cross-jurisdictional regulatory consultancy service. Our outlook is global, even when solving complex issues at a local level.

Our sector specialists go beyond the text-book explanations of how the EU decision-making procedure works, to help you understand how the system functions in real life. Our broad network of relationships with the EU institutions will help you to ensure that decisions affecting your business are not taken without your voice being heard.

We spend a great deal of our time analysing our clients' sectors, anticipating trends, and assessing the impact of regulatory and policy changes.  We advise on cutting-edge issues in highly regulated sectors including technology, communications, life science, healthcare, media, sports, automotive, financial services, and energy. 

Advance information is crucial for shaping any public affairs programme. Our team will act as an early warning system for forthcoming legislation that will change the way that you do business. Our expertise ranges from helping to place issues proactively on the legislative agenda, to providing support and strategic advice based on profound legal and regulatory knowledge and expertise together with a thorough understanding of public policy and decision-making processes.

Our team will act as your energetic coach in reaching your policy goals.
