Political insight

Our team has operated at a senior Whitehall level as well as with local MPs and council leaders across the UK and across the border in Scotland.

We’ve worked within No10 Downing Street and for all major Government departments and agencies over the past 20 years, continuing with partnership work with Department for Business and Trade, DfT, and DLUHC and their predecessor departments.

Our ability to navigate the system and work with the civil service and politicians is a valuable asset which adds a layer of insight and sophistication other agencies cannot match.

Joining the dots between national ambition and regional outcomes

Our work includes direct liaison with MPs, departmental officials and advisors; devising and delivering lobbying campaigns to support major investments; producing narratives to support funding bids and Business Cases; and facilitating events regionally and in Westminster that bring stakeholders and decision-makers together to help achieve policy goals.

We have also delivered communications and engagement support for major policy initiatives, including the UK2070 Commission, whose work influenced the government’s Levelling Up agenda, and for large-scale infrastructure investments such as HS2 and major highways projects.

BakerBaird also has unique experience in this field, our team working on policy agendas all the way from Whitehall through to street-level delivery in the UK regions. This means we can join the dots between national ambition and regional outcomes – a vital insight at a time when the need to unlock growth in the UK’s regions is seen as vital to future national prosperity.
