    Goals / Remit

    Avisa Partners is a public affairs consultancy, which focuses on certain clearly identified policy issues in which we claim real expertise: competition, trade, regulatory affairs (e.g. digital and media, energy, environment, telecommunications, financial services and corporate social responsibility), online advocacy and cyber-security. We believe in diversity: our team of consultants and advisors comprises individuals who are American, Belgian, British, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Irish, Israeli, Italian, Japanese, Lebanese, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Slovenian and Spanish. We believe in experience: all partners and several consultants have each spent time in the EU Institutions, with a mix of services and cabinets’ positions. Some of our consultants have worked in national administrations too. We believe in honesty: when we think we cannot help, we refer would-be clients to consultancies with more relevant expertise, and we do this on a routine basis with requests about say (...)

    Main EU files targeted

    Avisa Partners’ clients list includes companies from the private and public sector, associations, NGOs and Governments. We advice clients on aviation, Brexit, competition, climate change, digital, energy, environment and circular economy, external relations financial services, mobility, single market, R&D and trade.
