Public Affairs

Politics, policy and regulation have the power to knock you off course or to open up new opportunities.

To prepare for and take advantage of policy changes, you have to understand them. But politics can often seem difficult to analyse or predict.

Weber Shandwick’s public affairs team are experts in the political process. We can help you to understand what matters for your business – and help you to respond accordingly. Our consultants live for politics, whether that is played out in Parliament, a city hall, a town hall or a community hall.

But we are more than a public affairs practice.

Our political specialists work hand-in-hand with our consumer insight and strategy teams. We blend deep policy expertise with cutting edge communications capabilities to deliver campaigns that change legislation and society.

We’re also part of the world’s largest network of political experts with offices in every major political capital – from Beijing to Brussels, D.C. to Delhi. With shifting policies increasingly affecting businesses across international borders, we are where you need us to be to help you manage global political change.
