What we do

Copperfield is a boutique advisory firm that helps clients grow their businesses, improve their performance, and address issues through professional support on communications, public affairs, marketing, and corporate strategy. 

The firm is founded on the belief that a thoughtful communications strategy has the power not only to change how a business is viewed from the outside, but to fundamentally transform the business itself. We therefore also seek to help businesses understand and address the major forces at work in the economy and society, and capitalize on the opportunities that these changes provide. We help our clients set the agenda, instead of just react.

Our firm works with clients in public, private and social sectors with a particular focus on organizations that are led by their founders or owners.

Our experience running communications and marketing functions for major global institutions both internally, as CCOs, and externally, as trusted advisors at dedicated communications firms, gives us a unique ability to help small and large brands to achieve their strategic goals. We know what it’s like on the inside and from the outside.

Our team members are the peers of the clients we serve: with deep expertise in our fields, we have a track record of solving complex business problems, and we collectively draw on decades of experience working in markets across the world, over a broad range of industry sectors. At Copperfield, there is no B team.


How We Work


We have extensive experience in both running external consultancies and in leading large internal corporate marketing and communications teams. Drawing on these complementary backgrounds, we have developed a specific set of beliefs on how we should serve our clients.



Relationships Matter

Our colleagues understand that a good working relationship isn’t simply measured in terms of productivity. We seek to understand what matters to you and to create an environment of trust, transparency, and commitment to your long-term success.


Problems and Opportunities Deserve New Thinking

We draw on our past experience, but we think every client deserves fresh thinking oriented around the very specific context in which they operate, and the distinct opportunities and challenges that they face. This isn’t a one-size-fits-all kind of discipline.

Real Expertise and Continuity

We provide an unparalleled level of service by hiring only the best minds: people with a track record of solving complex business problems with deep technical expertise. The consultants you meet at the pitch will be there throughout the lifecycle of the project, and beyond.

Lean and Flexible

In our experience, large consulting teams can quickly become unwieldy, complicated, and expensive. We keep our teams compact and focused. Should a project grow in scope, we bring in additional expertise for only as long as needed.

Customized Recommendations for the Real World

We only hire experts and specialists, and we are pragmatists who understand that predetermined approaches rarely fit with the realities our clients face.
