Helping You to be Heard

Our Public Affairs Services include communications, issues management, coalition building and political campaign strategies. We use knowledge to persuade on your behalf, and ensure that you know about and can influence the decisions, policies and laws which affect you and your work.
WHAT IS PUBLIC AFFAIRS
‘Public affairs’ is a term used to describe your relationship with stakeholders. We identify and engage stakeholders in order to explain your ideas, ideals and initiatives on public policy issues, assisting policy makers and legislators in amending or laying down better policy and legislation. We provide knowledge based statistical and factual information and intelligence on which to base your arguments, and lobby on issues which could impact upon your ability to operate successfully.
LEX REX our public affairs programme combines government relations, media communications, issue management, corporate and social responsibility, information dissemination and strategic communications advice. We aim to influence public policy, build and maintain a strong reputation and find common ground with stakeholders.
Our clients value the more subtle sophisticated approach to influencing others. Therefore much of our work is done behind the scenes, with persuasion and placement gaining as much for clients as high profile advertising and marketing campaigns.
We specialise in ‘cause’ based campaigns where coalitions of concern are mobilised in support of the issues at stake, a concept we brand Mandate Marketing. Fundamental to our successful strategies is a thorough understanding of the problems or opportunities our clients face.
This often requires testing and indeed challenging the client’s own conclusions and views against those held by various audiences; it should always involve analytical objectivity, analogical reasoning and experienced judgement leading to definitive action. We are a firm of experienced professionals who believe there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all strategy; while many of our services and products are tried and tested we aim to use our knowledge to tailor a solution to meet your specific need.
LEXXER Solutions prides itself on developing a strategy and program that is bespoke and fits the exact needs of our clients. We are able to use our position as a Knowledge Broker to source the best people for the task and ensure quality and consistency of results throughout.
REPRESENTING YOUR INTERESTS
LEXXER offers a knowledge based approach to Public affairs consultancy which provides a cross cutting service covering legal support through to media and communications. Our blend of experts and academics bring sound research and proven practice to the table to ensure that you voice is heard, your ideas understood and your principles adopted.
Where we differ from other Public Affairs firms, lobbyists and consultants is that we want to see Principle put before Politics or Profit. The concept behind all our work is summed up by the word MAXIM. This is an expression of a general truth or principle and comes from the Latin maxima, shortened maxima propositio, literally "greatest premise, greatest among propositions" one which is absolute. MAXIM is our signature, our guarantee and our standard, to promote principle and truth as a means of effecting change for the better, for all. It also denotes the fact that because we are trusted as an honest broker, what we say and do for you will have greater credibility, currency and will bring about the change you require.
We will come on board at any stage either to help you foresee and plan for any problems on the horizon or to keep you afloat and ensure you survive any storm which has already hit. Our strategy is unique and powerful as we apply our MAXIM process to promote your cause, defend your case or highlight your concerns. It utilises a series of twin processes to plan, launch, promote, manage and develop any Public Affairs project.

ADVOCACY WITH INTEGRITY
For Vision, a Voice and Visual Impact
Our services are supported by methods which have proved themselves in numerous assignments with the objective of increasing the influence of our clients in the long term. They adopt a multi-disciplinary approach across a range of platforms which maximize the message and ensure both efficiency and effectiveness.
Our assignments are defined in clear contracts that protect both parties: guaranteeing confidentiality, negating any conflict of interest, and specifying the length of the assignment, invoicing methods, monthly reporting etc.
Our fees are calculated on the basis of time spent; either using a monthly rate corresponding to a prior estimate of the time required, or on the time actually spent each month.
We guarantee results without compromising principle or cutting corners. We will employ basic Christian ethics to counteract the often negative reputation of such work. To that end we have a self-regulating Code of Ethics which ensure our clients can rely upon
