Who we are

Public affairs
is our business

We are a Public Affairs agency. We help our clients identify political risks and opportunities, prepare them to participate in the policymaking process and then help them actively engage.

Politics and policymaking matter. They matter to all organisations both large and small, commercial or not for profit. In political processes that are constantly evolving both nationally and at EU level, keeping a close eye on policy threats and opportunities is essential. That is why our goal is to be trusted advisers to our clients, helping them contribute towards better policy outcomes. Getting your voice heard means being creative. Strategies need to be innovative and bespoke. After all, no two campaigns are the same.

Established in 1995, we’ve built up over 20 years of lobbying experience. But don’t take our word for it – the proof is in the longevity of our client relationships and their numerous public affairs successes over the years.



Creating client satisfaction


When participating in the policymaking process, it is vital that organisations are fully prepared and have an agreed plan to achieve their business objectives. We offer a robust sounding board to challenge our clients on their approach and develop the most appropriate strategy. We provide a range of services that ensure our clients properly understand the political environment and are fully equipped to engage with confidence.


Political developments and policy changes create both risks and opportunities to an organisation. We ensure our clients are kept up to speed and can plan effectively by tracking the political discourse of all relevant institutions and stakeholders, whilst providing analysis and recommendations to key developments. We make sure our clients have relevant and up to date information at hand, enabling them to campaign with useful facts and figures at their fingertips.


The policymaking process is full of opportunities for stakeholder input and it is here where we help our clients contribute effectively. We undertake a range of activities to ensure they meet with key influencers, participate during formal consultation periods and use specific platforms to raise awareness of their position. From meeting programmes, to consultation responses through to policy events and legislative proposals, we assist in putting forward the case to the policymakers.


We have extensive experience in bringing together several organisations and stakeholders to campaign cohesively across various communication channels. This includes managing industry trade associations across different sectors, as well as single-issue alliances on specific campaigns. Our work includes support on strategy, lobbying, PR, marketing, events and administration to ensure a fully integrated approach.

A commitment to excellence


Our success is built on our people. We are a team of bright, dedicated and enthusiastic public affairs professionals with a passion for making a difference.


We pride ourselves on building long-term relationships with our clients, where we become both trusted advisors and an integral part of their own team.


We gear all our public affairs activity to achieving our clients’ business objectives – a clear and simple focus.


We have an active presence in the key European markets through our own team and partners to ensure our clients have the necessary reach to engage with both national and EU institutions.


Transparency is at the heart of what we do and we are proud to be long-standing and active members of our public affairs industry associations playing our part in raising standards through strictly enforced codes of practice.
