Knowledge of the institutional environment

Anticipation is the key to an effective institutional strategy. To do so, our teams are able to analyze your legislative and regulatory environment and monitor developments at the European and national levels. We also offer to train your teams to ensure that institutional risks and opportunities are taken into account in your own internal decision-making processes.

Depending on your objectives, and the risks or opportunities identified in the framework of the monitoring, we propose to define the most relevant institutional strategy in order to make your voice heard in the public debate. We advise you and accompany you in order to promote an optimal dialogue with the key decision-makers in your environment (organization of meetings, drafting of arguments, proposals for modification of the texts concerned).
