Brussels, November 1: Leidar announces today that it has acquired the Brussels office of Aspect Consulting and will now operate with a team of ten consultants in Brussels.

Aspect Consulting, the strategic advisory firm with offices in Brussels, London, Paris and Rome, is refocusing towards senior-level business and Government support, focusing on international business development and political consulting. Leidar and Aspect have also formed a strategic partnership, where Leidar will support Aspect with communication delivery. The entire Brussels-based Aspect team will become Leidar employees as of November 1 and the office will be branded as Leidar Brussels.

With this expansion Leidar has now 60 consultants across its offices in London, Brussels, Geneva, Dubai and Oslo.

«A strong Brussels office is critical for our ambition to deliver advocacy and influence on a global scale. The world’s discourse on critical matters such as trade, migration, health and sustainability will be shaped by stakeholders in either London, Geneva or Brussels – and we are the only international boutique-consultancy that can offer high-end consulting and strategy implementation with direct access in this triangle of international advocacy and influence,» says Rolf Olsen, CEO and founder of Leidar.

«Aspect and Leidar found a good match in terms of both culture and services. This agreement is a significant step in our transformation towards more business focused services and consulting. With Leidar as a strategic partner, we will be able to serve our clients with communication delivery where required. We expect to work very closely and deliver successfully together for our clients through this new set-up,» says Aspect CEO James Hunt.
