About us...

Explico is an independent regulatory and policy firm with expertise in monitoring, regulatory analysis, political risk assessment, and policy advisory.. Headquartered in Budapest, Hungary, our team and structural advisors are stretching across the whole globe. Even though we are independent, Explico is the strategic partner of KREAB and EUTOP in Central and Eastern Europe.

Chief horizon scanners recognize Explico as an essential strategic partner. Our core strength lies in the detailed tracking of legislative and policy issues, complemented by a deep analysis of the trends in public discourse. Explico's approach is data-driven, offering chief horizon scanners the clarity they need to respond to the evolving landscape.

Explico specialises in regulatory monitoring. We offer assistance by tracking updates in laws, regulations, and technical specifications. Our monitoring encompasses decisions by regulators, court rulings, and inputs from other relevant entities. Additionally, we stay updated with publications and statements from various public and private bodies. Our goal is to provide clear and direct regulatory, policy and compliance advice, ensuring partners remain informed on essential changes.

Explico's policy advisory tasks are centred on aiding clients in understanding both their industry and the political landscape. Through a systematic method, we pinpoint, track, and evaluate long-term changes and trends. Our service offers insights into how these shifts might influence organisations or societal structures.

Established in 2011, Explico's name derives from our drive to explain the complexities of politics and regulation in the EU and beyond to private and public sector entities with interests. For our corporate clients, our mission is to help them understand, analyse and mitigate political risks by providing valuable information and in-depth analyses of the evolving political environment. We apply a fact-based approach and operate strictly transparently, in full compliance with the prevailing anti-corruption laws.

Our experts draw their experience in the fields of civil service, law, governmental affairs and corporate diplomacy to provide a range of strategic advisory services. We provide trusted, ethical, and professional services to help businesses recognize and mitigate political and regulatory risk, allowing them to capitalise on the opportunities afforded by accessing EU and other markets.

Our mastery of EU political networks, as well as our skillset in public policy, regulatory affairs, and communication, further combined with our legal capabilities, makes Explico a good match for those seeking to optimise business and trade opportunities in Europe and beyond.

Our clients...

Corporate clients

Multinational companies operating in this part of the world often feel perplexed by the complexity of EU processes. Businesses seeking to grow in the EU require responses to such risks that are locally tailored while corresponding to the expectations of a multinational company. We are able to translate EU challenges to the language spoken in global board rooms and help our clients to analyse and mitigate the effect of political risk on their EU operations. Many of our clients are Fortune 500 companies with a commercial interest in the EU or which seek to use their Central and Eastern European regional presence as leverage in pursuing public policy aims in Brussels.
