Key Strengths

Our leading European Public Policy Practice draws upon the strength, reputation and resources of a well- connected team of experienced EU legal and policy practitioners to advise clients on the most effective way to engage with EU institutions, policymakers at the national level and international bodies located in the region (e.g. NATO, OECD and WTO).

Our senior public policy advisory team in Europe includes former members of the EU Parliament, former ambassadors, former ministers and members of national parliaments, as well as former private sector executives.

We serve a diverse mix of private and public sector clients, from Fortune 500 corporations to emerging companies, and from non-governmental organisations and trade associations to governments.
