connecting people, creating partnerships

connecting people, creating partnerships


Passerelle is a Brussels-based EU public affairs consultancy.

passerelle is ‘a bridge’ and that’s exactly what we are. We link our clients with policymakers – connecting people and creating partnerships – to ensure sound European legislation. Our logo is inspired by the beautiful art deco bridge that links the European institutions in the heart of the EU quarter of the city.

We specialise in creating focused, flexible EU public-private sector forums that bring all of the relevant stakeholders together around a table to discuss and find solutions to emerging policy issues or challenges.

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

We also work with Associations, helping them build relationships, raise awareness and engage with the EU institutions in ways that benefit both them and EU policymakers.

As part of the Ampliagroup, a worldwide network of experts, we are the ‘bridge to Europe’ for clients based outside of the EU.

Our professionalism and integrity underscore everything we do. We are signatories to the EU Transparency Register and are accredited lobbyists to the European Parliament.

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 exploratory session if you would like to have a no-strings-attached 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.

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.
