  • Insight & intelligence: publishing regular analysis on business-relevant political and regulatory issues throughout the Brexit process, as well as providing daily insights on developments originating from government and other decision-making bodies in the UK, Brussels, EU Member States and the USA.

  • Policy and Business Impact Analysis: supporting clients in their analysis of the potential business impact of Brexit and helping clients draw out what they need to see from both the transitional and long term UK/EU trading relationship.

  • Brexit Strategy-Planning: supporting clients to define their strategies and operational agendas relating to organizational change, talent optimization, asset allocation and investment plans.

  • Communications Strategy: counseling clients on strategies to communicate their Brexit transition plans to employees, commercial audiences, the investment community, stakeholders and the media across all channels, including digital.

  • Advocacy: help clients to ensure that their objectives and strategies for Brexit and their representations for future trading arrangements between the UK / EU are heard and understood by policymakers in government as well as regulators (across Westminster, Whitehall, the City of London, Brussels & EU Institutions, EU Member States & Washington DC).

Commenting on the unit, Teneo’s Chairman and Chief Executive Declan Kelly said: “The pending transition of their business through the Brexit process presents the leaders of our clients with one of the most significant strategic challenges they are likely to face in the coming years. Drawing from across Teneo’s unrivaled range of capabilities and delivered through our extraordinarily experienced and talented team, we are in a unique position to counsel our clients through this process. The fact that we are already advising over a dozen major clients on their strategy and approach on Brexit confirms the critical need for such an integrated capability.”
