European Union engagement

Engagement with the European Union is a vital part of any public affairs strategy, given the impact that the decisions, legislation, regulations and guidance issued and adopted by the European Union can have on the policies of the UK and other member states. This will be the case until the UK finally leaves the EU, and decisions made in the latter will likely continue to influence the UK regulatory environment for many sectors even after Brexit. The Whitehouse Consultancy’s dedicated European team has more than a decade’s worth of experience conducting successful campaigns on behalf of multinational corporations, small companies and pan-European trade associations. Our success is based on our multilingual team’s expertise in both European politics and law, as well as valuable experience of working with and within the institutions of the European Union.

Stakeholder mapping

At the heart of our work in Europe is comprehensive stakeholder mapping to identify and prioritise with whom our clients must be communicating across the European Union, including its institutions and agencies, as well as industry bodies and member states. Our stakeholder engagement strategies include relevant Members of the European Parliament (MEPs), European Commission officials, EU agencies, and EU-wide stakeholders including individual member states, industry groups and consumer organisations.

Strategic advice

Our dedicated European team includes multilingual experts in European policy and European law. We provide our clients with bespoke consultancy and senior counsel on how they can best engage with the bodies of the European Union, based on our knowledge and understanding of the issues they face and the legal and political ramifications at both European and national levels.

Intelligence gathering and forecasting

We go beyond simply monitoring the events and activities of the various bodies within the European Union and individual member states to provide our clients with detailed analysis as to how decisions taken in Europe might affect their organisation. We monitor a diverse range of sources, ranging from debates in the European Parliament, meetings of the Council and discussions within the Commission’s specialised committees, to technical and scientific meetings of specialist European agencies.This analysis, identification of political risk and political forecasting allows us to recommend the best and most appropriate course of action to our clients.

Event organisation

We also support client objectives by offering our clients a range of policy-focused event organisation services –  standalone events services, events with supporting engagement campaigns or events as part of a wider ongoing service offer – in a range of member states. We have experience of working closely with clients to manage budgets for events taking place in different member states and that focus on EU or international topics. This includes delivering an end-to-end event, from working with suppliers across Europe to identifying key stakeholders and speakers and managing the event itself on the ground.
