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, 27 Member States, 183 diplomatic missions, 705 Members of the European Parliament and 23,000 European Commission officials, how do you ensure that the voice of your business is heard above all the noise?

Your business can benefit from Bird & Bird’s regulatory expertise and pragmatic public affairs advice. We can help you by signalling forthcoming legislation, organising your advocacy and engagement with decision-makers, as well as helping your company to comply with incoming laws. Our Regulatory & Public Affairs team works at the intersection of policy, the legal framework, and business realities. We have the experience your organisation needs to navigate complex decision-making processes. 

When you instruct Bird & Bird, you are working with a team that takes the necessary time to analyse your business sector, anticipate trends and assess the impact of regulatory and policy changes. We advise on cutting-edge issues in highly regulated sectors including technology, communications, media, sports, financial services. life science, automotive and energy. Our Regulatory & Public Affairs team works in an integrated way with our legal experts. This means that clients do not have to separately brief a law firm and an external public affairs consultancy, which saves on time and fees as well as ensuring an efficient, coordinated approach.

Our sector specialists go beyond textbook explanations of how the EU decision-making procedure works, to help you understand how the system functions in real life. Clients can rely on our broad network of relationships with EU institutions to ensure that decisions affecting their business are not taken without their voice being heard.

Advance information is crucial for shaping any public affairs programme. Your business will benefit from our early warning system for forthcoming legislation that will change the way that you do business. Depending on your specific needs, we can help you to define your messages and convey your priorities to key decision-makers at the right time or provide cross-jurisdictional mapping of the transposition of new legislation at national level. We provide support and strategic advice based on profound legal and regulatory knowledge together with a thorough understanding of public policy and decision-making processes.
