What we do

Are you part of an innovative and fast-growing business?

Exciting times. But without the right guidance, you’re at risk of being affected by outdated laws and hastily introduced regulations that negatively impact on your operations and growth.

Talk to us. We’re a pioneering political consultancy that can give you clear and comprehensive political and regulatory advice, and influence the right authorities to help you achieve your aims.

We have expertise across international markets and work with businesses of all sizes as part of our mission to advance innovation. Our agile and flexible team is well placed to spot emerging policy and regulatory areas and take swift responsive action.

We can shape regulation to help your company grow.


Political and Regulatory Monitoring & Analysis

You’re part of a fast-growing, game-changing business. How will regulatory trends in your market affect you?

By conducting in depth, up to the minute research we can identify worldwide regulatory trends in your sector. Using our political expertise and connections, we find out crucial information on upcoming regulations and how they might impact you.

We keep one step ahead of changes, so when you need us we’re ready to guide you.

Advocacy and Campaigning

You’re new to the market. You need regulation on your side from the start.

We can help craft your arguments and clearly communicate your points of view. With a large network across key EU member states, we create important coalitions at every stage of the legislative process to ensure you get the best regulatory outcomes. Where necessary, we also arrange strategic media campaigns to raise awareness of your issues.

We help shape the playing field you operate in by working closely with the authorities to define and steer policy.

Market Entry Services

You’re looking to expand your business into new areas. But if you don’t know the landscape you’re flying blind.

We conduct extensive research on the political and regulatory situation in new sectors or geographies, advise on the current regulations you need to comply with now, and evaluate the political and regulatory risks that may arise in the future. We ensure you’re well equipped to make the most appropriate market entry choices.

We get there first, then tell you what you need to know.

Political Risk Advisory

You want to merge with or acquire another business. But if it’s an unfamiliar regulatory landscape, you’re taking a chance.

We research and evaluate the political and regulatory risks involved if you’re considering M&A, and investigate and analyse current and potential future regulations that may impact on your investment.

We give you comprehensive regulatory advice to help you achieve accurate valuations.

Political PR and Crisis Communications

You need to put the right messages across to generate political and public support. How will you get your target audience to listen?

For your company to engage effectively with policymakers and the public, your messaging needs to be clear and compelling. We can work with you to deliver a powerful communications strategy at short notice, and can position your company as a thought leader in your sector.

We help you to protect and promote your brand at the highest levels.

Our Story

It starts with a passion: A passion to support and guide new, upcoming industries and disruptive innovations; and to change minds and policies through better understanding, better communication and better education.

It’s why we started Inline Policy.

Inline Policy began as the policy division of boutique management consultancy firm, Aleron Partners, but it became independent in October 2013.

The team quickly expanded before relaunching as Inline Policy in April 2014.
