Regulatory insight and analysis

Body

We provide analysis and interpretation of political, policy and regulatory developments across the UK, Europe, Asia and the Americas. We assist clients with tracking regulatory and policy changes form the initial stages of blue-sky policy thinking, through the development and passage of legislation and onto implementation on a local, national and international level. Our sectoral expertise in technology, date and climate policy combined with our global reach enables us to put developments in a global context, anticipating where tension will shape policy and governments will import and export policy priorities.

Evidence-based strategy

Body

We advise clients throughout their engagement with the policymaking process. Our services include tactical support on stakeholder identification, outreach and prioritisation ensuring clients are targeting the right decision-makers, planning strategically to enable timely and impactful policy engagement, including independent convening through conferences and roundtables, and policy evidence development through primary and secondary research and advocacy collateral design.

Thought leadership as a route to market

Building on our insights and analysis, we assist our clients in becoming thought leaders, thereby elevating conversations with partners in government and the private sector while also helping them develop a strong reputation with private sector clients and collaborators. Our thought leadership is equally effective for enhancing discussions with like-minded partners in the private sector. We use policy debates as neutral spaces for commercial networking and for building coalitions.
