Working with clients to understand and engage on issues that drive policymaking in Westminster, Whitehall and devolved governments

We serve a range of businesses and companies where UK politics and policy is a significant factor in planning and strategic decision-making. Working across sectors, we provide holistic support to clients, external challenge, additional bandwidth and practical support to engage with policymaking processes in the UK.  The offer of our UK team is underpinned by experience in British politics at the highest levels. More widely and when relevant, the global nature of our firm equips the UK team with the ability to draw on the experience of policymakers in other jurisdictions and international institutions to add an additional dimension to our advice.

HOW WE HELP CLIENTS

Title
Quantifying political risk

Body

We support clients to understand the commercial implications of political risks and opportunities. Using our in-house expertise and global network of policymakers, we conduct in-depth due diligence research projects to provide timely commercial advice in relation to investment decisions. Given the heightened nature of geopolitical risk, our UK oriented advice increasingly draws on Global Counsel’s cross-jurisdictional and sectoral expertise.

Evidence-based strategy

Body

We develop strategies for clients who want to engage with regulatory and policy change, building on our insight and analysis products. This includes stakeholder audits to ensure clients are engaging the right decisionmakers in the right places with the right messages; strategic planning to ensure engagement is timely and impactful; independent convening through conferences and roundtables; and in-depth research and authorship of advocacy collateral.

Title
Regulatory insight and analysis

Body

We interpret UK political, policy and legislative developments as they happen. This work draws on our experience of working in politics, government and regulated sectors, and the interplay between them. Specific products include briefing notes, deep policy analysis in relation to a particular sector, regular and flash calls to responding to events, and integration into policy engagement strategies.

Title
Thought leadership as a route to market
