Whitehall and the complex world of policy
Powerscourt’s political team has years of parliamentary media and advisory experience, through which we have accumulated an extensive network of contacts. Our work includes emergency lobbying, long-term legislative campaigns, and raising cases of public importance with MPs and peers. We specialise in select committee preparation, broadcast media training and developing political stories.
With former senior media advisors, Powerscourt is well-placed to help you navigate political risk, including engaging with the political media and parliamentary select committees.
Powerscourt understands the need for continuous strategic and proactive engagement with political and governmental decision-makers, at both EU and domestic levels. We offer in-depth expertise, trusted counsel and extensive contact networks.
