Public Affairs and Public Policy Specialty Practice
When regulatory and legislative decisions hold your future in the balance, we elevate your narrative, to demonstrate unwavering support for your position. Knowing the right legislators, regulators, and aids to communicate your position is only the first step in the development of a strategically designed public affairs strategy. We run political-style campaigns that win issues. Whether it is troubling legislation, a crisis situation or attacks from the media, we analyze your issue, determine the strategy, and execute.
At LIQUID, we believe that public affairs excellence should focus on the development and management of long-term stakeholder relationships, based on trust. We help our clients navigate institutional relationships, engage constructively in policy discussions, and build meaningful public and private partnerships to amplify their voice concerning the most important societal issues.
With our global perspective, LIQUID has a unparalleled insight into the trends shaping the legislative and regulatory environments, and the right strategies to shape trends in the environments our clients operate.
We understand that the world has changed and so has public engagement and advocacy. Over the last two decades, the world has experienced vast shifts in the core constructs of society: politics, economics and technology. The need for public engagement by business has never been greater, yet the challenges that businesses face have never been more complex.
While a variety of political and economic trends exist, including the rise in the influence of non-state actors, the weakening of public trust in governments and democracy, a rapid advance in technological developments and compounding global societal issues, we provide our clients with trusted guidance that enable them to build long-term stakeholder relationships. These relationships can do more than influence policy, they change the way our clients view their business from a global perspective.
