How we help clients
Paragraph

Title
Supply chain due-diligence

Body

Our team helps clients assess, anticipate, and respond to risks and opportunities resulting from trade disputes, market entry, or restructuring global value chains. As part of our policy due diligence and global investor services work, we produce red flag reviews and deep-dive reports examining political, policy, and regulatory developments. This includes assessing when policy-driven supply disruptions can be seen as temporary or when they are independent from political cycles or call for supply diversification.

Title
Intelligence and insight

Body

Our team can provide real-time advice as well as regular monitoring tools and calls tailored to clients' product lines on issues such as post-Brexit regulatory divergence risks. Our monitoring capabilities can include horizon scans and risk maps and can be tailored to any format, including flash calls and briefings, thematic notes, or slide decks.

Title
Strategic advisory

Body

We support both government affairs and operational teams to understand policy changes that may impact operations from high-level overviews to deep dives. We help clients anticipate and adapt to policy change and position company messaging to help build internal capacity. We leverage our diverse networks and experience in government to offer targeted strategic advice.

Title
Advocacy and engagement

We build advocacy strategies and campaigns that transform insights and analysis into action plans to achieve client objectives. We support clients in producing a full range of engagement collateral that is well-evidenced and effectively argued.
