Europe & Eurasia

European Union

McLarty Europe includes seasoned Europe hands with decades of experience living and working in Brussels as former officials, diplomats, thought leaders, and public affairs professionals.

We’ve worked with some of the most prominent US and European companies as they navigate EU institutions, political dynamics within and between the Member States, seek EU competition approval, and respond to policy shifts in the transatlantic relationship.

Led by former Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs and US Ambassador to Germany Richard Burt, our team includes Washington- and Brussels-based professionals with the institutional knowledge and deep networks to achieve results on clients’ behalf in both Brussels and in member states.

  • Competition Approval

While the dialogue with antitrust authorities is primarily a legal one, competition authorities rarely if ever come to a decision in a vacuum.  Mastering the political considerations of a decision and supporting a wider dialogue have been at the heart of the European strategies we’ve provided to our clients, which have facilitated the successful completion of some of the largest transatlantic deals of the last decade.

  • EU-US Trade and Digital Agenda

We provide our clients with a comprehensive understanding of the transatlantic as well as the national and European dynamics surrounding the key trade issues – including digital ones- as well as the prevailing political environment in the United States, at Member State level, and in Brussels. We advise them on strategies and help them protect their interests in a fast-changing environment.

  • European Green Deal

We advise clients on possible implications for their businesses brought by the European Green Deal and the overall European sustainability agenda,  keeping them ahead of the game as they plan for their future, supporting them in understanding and shaping their operational environment to help them navigate the complexity of these policies, and protect and grow their operations despite significant regulatory and political challenges.
