Public Affairs

Drawing upon decades of government, campaign and policy experience to provide fully integrated public affairs counsel.

SVC Public Affairs works closely with clients around the world to advance critical interests through policy positioning, coalition building, media relations, thought leadership, stakeholder surveys and focus groups, and targeted advertising. With leadership from our offices in Washington, New York and London, over thirty public affairs professionals across our nine offices guide clients through all aspects of government approval and oversight, crisis management, litigation support and reputation management. In the US, this includes M&A reviews – including CFIUS, DOJ and FTC – and hearings and investigations at the federal and state level. In the UK, our team provides policy impact assessments and advises clients on regulatory matters, select committee inquiries and legislative changes. Our team includes former officials who have worked on public affairs for Republican and Democratic administrations, with Members of Congress and Parliament, trade associations, think tanks and Fortune 500 companies.
