Public Affairs and Governmental Relations

Germany and Europe are in the middle of their greatest phase of political and economic trans­formation since World War II. The challenges presented by the climate crisis, the dis­ruptions caused by digitali­sation and demographic change as well as the impact of war in Europe are having huge effects on all areas of industry. The leg­isla­tive and the executive are being forced to very rapidly react to these many trans­formational challenges and to actively shape change. In this situation it is im­por­tant to maximise your own company’s room for manoeuvre. To be prepared as a company for the future, you have to be able to be skill­fully and strate­gi­cally present and influential on the stage of societal discourse, and you need to repre­sent your interests in the (party)-political arena and in national legis­lation. To do this success­fully you need to under­stand the processes and mechanisms involved. And you also need to be able to com­pre­hensively and con­vinc­ingly formulate your arguments to stake­holder groups.

What you can expect from us

Our experts at our Berlin office will be by your side when it comes to influencing relevant stake­holders and in finding the right people to listen to you at the right time and in the right place – in govern­ment, the media and with industry asso­cia­tions. With their back­ground in political parties, groups and ministries our con­sultants will help you track of what is going on on the po­liti­cal stage. They bring to the table their previous expertise in politics, make contacts, es­tab­lish dialogue oppor­tu­nities, thus helping you to present your topics and demands in a “politi­cally compatible” way. And thanks to our Brussels colleagues from the /amo net­work, we always have access to deep insights into European policy develop­ments that are so relevant to Germany as an in­dus­trial location.
