Government Relations & Public Affairs

Government Relations and Public Affairs expertise that shape change and create policy impact

Our team has Parliament, policy, media relations and business strategy experience, but are united by a passion for helping brands drive impact through policy change.

Nick LansmanPresident, Corporate Affairs

Policy matters because it shapes our society. It underpins nations’ most important decisions, impacting lives and economies. Whether it’s tackling health inequalities, grappling with the climate emergency, or harnessing the potential of digital, policy powers inevitable change. 

Sitting back and watching it unfold or unravel is therefore not an option. 

Policy also operates in a landscape that’s in a constant state of flux, governed by ever-changing factors, from laws and regulations, to politicians, to the press and social media. 

Working with key stakeholder groups, we help our clients navigate this environment, ensuring their voices are heard in crowded conversations, influencing decisions and building reputations. Our unique offering is the perfect fusion of Government Relations, Public Affairs and PR.

Our integrated approach has earned us multiple awards and nominations.

Who Are Our Government Relations and Public Affairs Services For?

Our hard-hitting, knowledgeable Public Affairs team have worked with small businesses, massive corporations, trade bodies, not-for-profits, and charities. Ultimately, we’re all affected by policy and this means Government Relations and Public Affairs are relevant for every organization.

Our strategy and tactics are tailored to meet our clients’ bespoke needs, and our campaigns vary from the niche and technical, to achieving front page news. We’ve been instrumental in shaping internet policy to enable e-commerce to flourish, and to protect children online; we’ve campaigned to improve the take up of HealthTech by the NHS; we’re championing Cybersecurity, FinTech and Energy-Tech; and we’re supporting clients on their road to net zero.
