Political risk services

We provide political risk services to ensure our clients understand the people, policies and processes that could affect their interests. We work with investors, boards, executive teams and corporate affairs units in domestic and multi-market settings.


Our political risk services include:

Political due diligence

We support buyers, sellers and lenders in assessing the ways in which public policy may affect a transaction or assets under consideration. This can include merger control, regulatory action and legislative or electoral risks that might affect the future value of an asset or relationship.

Public opinion and reputation research

We help clients to understand how they are perceived among key audiences, including highly targeted political influencers such as Members of Parliament. Using qualitative and quantitative research, we build a clear picture of an organisation’s brand profile, including any vulnerabilities and strengths.

Strategic support

We also provide senior counsel and strategic advice to help clients to manage political risks and make the right strategic decisions. Find out more here.

Supporting expansion

We map the political and regulatory terrain ahead of market entry so that our clients understand the key political figures, organisations, policies and risk factors on the horizon. We can combine political risk analysis with senior counsel, guiding the wider corporate stategy.

Corporate oversight

Several of our clients have been non-UK based and required independent political monitoring to inform their boards and senior leadership teams. We provide timely insights and bespoke political monitoring services regarding their assets and operations.
