who we are

who we are


Passerelle is a Brussels-based European Union (EU) consultancy.

We are specialists in creating and managing focused, flexible EU public/private sector forums to address emerging policy issues or challenges.

Reflecting the new way of doing business in a digital, fast-changing world, our team of independent consultants can quickly and efficiently bring together the ideal team of specialists locally, in Europe and globally to match our clients’ needs. Through our Paris team, we engage with global institutions including the OECD and FATF on policy developments impacting our clients and work in Brussels. As part of the ampliagroup, a worldwide network of experts, we act as a ‘bridge to Europe’ for clients based outside of the EU.

We have multi-sector experience, with particular strengths in EU advocacy support to the legal and financial sectors.

Professionalism and integrity underscore all our activities. We are signed up to the EU Transparency Register and are accredited lobbyists to the European Parliament.


What we do

what we do


We create and manage small, focused, flexible EU forums in response to specific sector/policy needs. Through these forums we bring together around one table all relevant private and public sector stakeholders, including citizens, business, law and policymakers. In this way we aim to build relationships and trust, address issues in a practical way and find workable solutions, resulting in better EU policymaking for all.

Two forums we founded and manage are the European Retail Financial Forum and the European Justice Stakeholders Forum. See Case Studies for more information.

Do you have an idea for a potential new EU forum based on a particular sector or policy need? We are happy to offer you a free scoping session if you would like to have a non-committal discussion. Contact us here

Working with Passerelle and Fiona Murray on the European Justice Stakeholder Forum project has always been a pleasure. Their proposals were creative, competent, constructive and delivered prefectly on time. Fiona has excellent connections with the European ‘family’.

Arno Metzler, President Group III

Professional, efficient, results-focused. I highly applaud Passerelle’s initiative in creating the European Justice Stakeholder Forum. The forum serves a valuable need for a platform for high level discussion and consensus between EU law makers and civil society on major cross-cutting challenges affecting the legal profession, rule of law and access to justice for Europe’s citizens.

Diana Wallis, Council member and former President

STEP has enjoyed a highly effective long term working relationship with Fiona Murray and the Passerelle team. Fiona’s solutions-focused, creative approach has helped STEP to engage with EU decision makers at senior level across all the strands of the Brussels policy environment  – the Commission, Member States and the EU Parliament. Passerelle has helped us inform and shape the debate on a number of sometimes highly technical issues from initial proposals to final trilogue negotiations, helping us achieve outcomes which have been of real benefit to STEP members, their clients and the wider public.

George Hodgson, CEO

As a founding member of the European Retail Financial Forum (ERFF), KBC is particularly impressed by Passerelle’s strategic and creative approach in devising and driving ERFF’s agenda, including excellent high level technical workshops in the European Parliament with all stakeholders. This informal grouping of members and associates together with policymakers is refreshing, unique and valuable for KBC’s engagement with the EU.

Chris Muyldermans, Counsel Regulatory Affairs, Corporate Public Affairs
KBC Group

Passerelle has demonstrated an impressive combination of strategic understanding and practical acumen in its work with the International Bar Association, as well as a deep knowledge of the Brussels environment.
