Stratagem is Northern Ireland's first dedicated lobbying company. Founded in 1998, our team collectively brings 75 years' experience of politics, policy and campaigning from Belfast, Dublin, Westminster, Brussels and Washington.
Clients have benefited from our strategic and creative approach, helping them make connections, build coalitions and take their objectives to the heart of the decision-making process.
Over the decade since its creation, Stratagem has delivered for clients by helping them navigate the complexities of Northern Ireland politics and public policy. Commitment to client satisfaction, flexibility of approach, and staff development and retention, have all contributed to our longevity in a market historically marked by instability and lack of confidence.
Our expertise, developed from innovation and growth has established Stratagem as the market leader in public affairs in Northern Ireland.
Stratagem chose its strapline 'Lobbying for the Future' to help reclaim that often debased term. Lobbying is, after all, a fundamentally democratic activity, a basic right of any citizen and an essential oil for the political system, linking knowledgeable and passionate clients with decision-makers.
Based in the historic Carnegie Library on Belfast's Donegall Road, Stratagem is at the heart of the community. This is reflected in our work with local groups to develop the area in which we are located.
Stratagem engages with the democratic process in an open and transparent way- lobbying as it should be.
Essentially, we do politics.
