Interel EU and Interelians selected by Best in Brussels
BestinBrussels.eu is the first and only source for organisations that want to identify, compare and choose the best partners in Brussels to represent their interests. The headhunter agency seeks to promote best practice, the best firms and the best professionals in EU Public Affairs to help connect the best Brussels lobbyists with clients. In their Best in Brussels 2020 Report*, they cover in depth the Top Public Affairs Consultancies in Brussels that clients are invited to consider for their EU public affairs needs.
To select the Top EU Public Affairs Consultancies, authors of Best in Brussels.eu underwent a process of reaching out to agencies, vetting them online and externally, meeting with their leadership, as well as talking to clients and staff. Finally, the Top EU Public Affairs Consultancies were assessed on client retention, staff retention, robust leadership, industry recognition, best-in-class practices and ‘buzz’ backed up by substance.

The Directory of Best in Brussels.eu includes CEO Grégoire Poisson, Deputy Managing Partner Kieran O’Keeffe, EU Head of Association Management Benita Lipps, Managing Director Health Julie Cooper, Senior Director Vinciane Patelou and Senior Associate Richard Steel.
