About Helmsley Partners

Helmsley Partners is a political risk and strategy consultancy with expertise in the UK market. We help companies and investors to navigate the UK’s political landscape and make the right strategic decisions.

Our offer is twofold: we provide political risk analysis to help clients understand the terrain and we provide strategic advice to help them turn that knowledge into action.


We help companies operate with confidence in an uncertain political environment. For example, we can:


  • Conduct political due diligence for teams planning cross-border transactions.

  • Advise acquirers and lenders on mergers and acquisitions in which public policy factors influence pricing decisions.

  • Support firms with their expansion into the UK, helping to understand relevant political and policy factors.

  • Help corporate affairs teams to build their strategic plans and government affairs engagement programmes.

  • Design systems for overseas board members, LPs and GPs seeking to manage political risk across UK-based portfolios and operations.

  • Establish crisis communications frameworks to prepare clients for when the worst happens.

  • Develop thought leadership and policy platforms to help clients to lead the debate in public policy.
