Public Advocacy

Navigating the world of Westminster, Whitehall, the plethora of public bodies and the media can be complex. To successfully communicate in this world, you need to ensure you have the right messages. At Mishcon we take an issues-based approach to the political, policy and media challenges that individuals and organisations face.

Whether your organisation is seeking to input into policy or engage with Government decision makers, navigate complex regulatory challenges, manage a hostile media environment or generate media interest, our integrated team of professionals can help you articulate your case and navigate the landscape.

We began as litigators – advocates for our clients in court and at arbitrations. We then found that we were being asked to advocate in less conventional forums, and to more diffuse audiences. This is because we know how to make the right arguments, to the right people at the right time. Our approach is to generate an evidence base using economic, consumer and political research as a platform for engagement with the media, Government, regulators and the wider policy community.

We are an integrated team of public policy experts, lawyers, academics, and communications professionals. We work with journalists and statisticians, think-tanks and pressure groups and NGOs. We are supported by the Firm’s Reputation Protection Group, but we collaborate with lawyers from every department as and when Public Advocacy can enhance the service offered to clients.
