Public Affairs

Senior consultants for dialogue with public authorities.

Successful business strategies require companies and organizations to understand not only the characteristics of their economic and competitive environment, but also their social and political environment. Companies must have the ability to anticipate risks and take advantage of the opportunities generated by contexts of high uncertainty. LLYC's team of consultants and public affairs analysts, with presence in 16 countries in Europe, Latin America and the USA, offer their clients senior expertise to defend their interests, and establish a correct dialogue with public authorities, always based on loyal, stable, and fluid relationships.
