Public Policy & Strategic Communications

We operate at the intersection of law, politics, policy and public perception, to enable your commercial strategy.

 

In an increasingly complex, highly-regulated and interconnected world, delivering the right outcomes often relies on meaningful engagement with a broad range of stakeholders.

Our Public Policy and Strategic Communications team operates at the intersection where law, politics, policy and public perception meet. Our expert advisory team will support you in engaging with the political, media and reputational aspects of delivering your strategy.

We work with a diverse range of clients to help them understand, analyse and navigate the policy process - and protect and enhance reputation through effective communication.

We use the knowledge and research capacity that comes from being part of one of the most innovative firms in Europe to provide an equally creative service tailored to complement legal support. 

Public affairs, parliamentary relations and political engagement

Our team has a deep understanding of Government, the media and other influencer groups across the UK, and helps clients to understand both what policy developments may mean for their organisation, and how to engage in the political process to ensure that their own views are heard.Working in close partnership with our Parliamentary and Government Affairs legal team, we provide comprehensive UK-wide advice on the legal, strategic and procedural issues associated with the Parliamentary process.
