Public Affairs

Relationships between governments, citizens and industry in Europe have shifted dramatically over the past decade, and are now deeper and more complex. Because we understand this shift and are driven by digital, we can help you devise effective, innovative engagement strategies and alliances at a European and member state level.

Weber Shandwick’s European public affairs practice is the only agency with leadership designed to meet the needs of every political constituency, from Westminster to Brussels, and other centres of excellence. Our award-winning teams (including two coveted Cannes PR Lions for client campaigns that made a real difference to policy) are drawn from government, journalism, public and voluntary backgrounds.

We’re committed to ethical conduct in public affairs, and fully support the move to statutory regulation for lobbyists across Europe.

Our extensive network means we can support clients of all types in every region of Europe, with particular strengths in technology, health, defence and advanced manufacturing, energy, financial services, the media industry, food and agriculture, and legal and professional services.
