About Stenström Consulting

Brussels Office Since


Firm Description

Stenström Consulting is a Brussels-based EU public affairs consultancy. We offer advice on EU policy and regulatory developments and provide services to clients from different countries and different industry sectors. Many of Stenström’s clients are regular and long-standing. Although we are a small consultancy, we count several multinational companies as our clients and we often report to the highest level within those firms. The company was founded by Kajsa Stenström, who has more than 20 years of experience in providing strategic EU advice. Prior to launching Stenström Kajsa set up and managed a unique public affairs department within an international law firm. This means that Stenström is very close to the legal community in Brussels.

Ownership Structure

Belgian Management firm, majority owned by Kajsa Stenström.

International Network

Stenström Consulting is a growing company with a number of strategic partnerships both locally and in key countries, including Israel, France, Germany, the UK, and Sweden. The firm has an innovative take on expansion and regularly collaborates with likeminded independents, law firms and business intelligence agencies.

Key Strengths

Our accomplishments over the years can be explained by the commitment to excellence in service delivery. We are precise and conscientious in our work yet have the ability to see the bigger picture and to understand the real impact of EU policy on our clients’ daily business. We are discreet yet efficient; we know that “Brussels is all about compromise” and that a pushy attitude does not necessarily take you far. We also know to make a low-key presence in the core dialogue – which is that between the client and the decision maker. Finally, we pride ourselves in being able to think laterally – we enjoy working across sectors and finding synergies and unexpected collaborations.
