Government Relations

Shaping government decisions and policies through advocacy

Government decisions at all levels and across the world’s political capitals impact the bottom line of every economic sector and business. Legal and regulatory actions by governments create the need for multinational corporations, business associations and non-profit organizations to help shape public policies by educating decision-makers in a transparent and timely manner.

We create and manage campaigns designed to advance ideas, shape policymaking and advocate client interests through legislative and regulatory processes. Across Europe, the Americas, the Middle East and Asia, our experienced government relations professionals advise clients in any number of evolving public policy areas, including:

  • Trade negotiations and dispute settlement
  • Anti-trust and competition
  • Regulation of financial services 
  • Information technologies
  • Energy and climate
  • Agriculture and food security
  • Healthcare
  • Transportation
  • Defense and security
  • Government procurement
  • Political and economic reform

With a market-leading presence in key political capitals around the world, our network of government relations specialists understand how to approach and influence the actions of executive bodies, parliaments and multilateral institutions. Our government relations and public affairs teams around the globe regularly collaborate to generate better intelligence, develop smarter strategies and advocate bottom-line results for clients operating globally. In addition to direct advocacy before sovereign governments, we also help clients engage with multilateral institutions such as the European Union, United Nations, World Trade Organization and World Health Organization, among others.
