Goals / remit

Goals / remit of the organisation: HLC is a strategy consulting firm specialised in public policy issues. Our clients are Fortune 500 companies or campaign groups.

Our focus is to help build public policy into the business planning processes. For some clients, policy issues may be peripheral. In other cases, they can be business critical. We work with clients to move beyond communications to wider planning, to ensure that they prepare for future change before their competitors, and contribute to the policy debate in advance of legislation.

Lobbying: In general, we work as overall advisors to our clients, engaging other agencies for implementation as needed. In certain cases, however, we also support the advocacy work of our clients directly. Currently lobbying represents less than 5% of our turnover. Details listed below.

Other (financial) information provided by the organisation:

Given the absence of detailed rules from the European Commission, we have applied our best judgement about what is and is not considered EU lobbying. Whenever we work with clients on EU issues we have nonetheless included information on the register. Much of our work can include providing services and advice to clients unrelated to the European intuitions and so has been discounted from the register.
