We operate at the intersection where law, politics, policy and public perception meet. Our experts advise on UK parliamentary issues including government and private/local legislation, scrutiny and procedure.
We help clients understand and navigate legislative and parliamentary processes and to bring about legislative and public policy change, and obtain legislative approvals.
We have parliamentary agent expertise in the UK Parliament; and advise across all assemblies and Parliaments of the UK and at EU level. Working closely with our public policy colleagues, we operate at the intersection of law, politics, government policy and public perception. We can help with government policy and delivering or changing legislation whether primary (government bills, private/local bills or hybrid bills) or secondary (orders, regulations or byelaws). Our Parliamentary team is integrated with our planning team and secures harbour orders, transport and works act orders and development consent orders to authorise major infrastructure.
Additionally, clients can find themselves involved before various Parliaments and assemblies even if they are not seeking legislative change. We can guide clients through the daunting world of parliamentary scrutiny processes, such as select committee appearances and written submissions, and other aspects of parliamentary procedure.
