WELCOME TO VLAHOVIC GROUP
We advocate for clients in the forum of public policy.
Vlahovic Group is the first professional government relations and lobbying firm in Croatia founded by Natko Vlahovic in 2008. Almost twenty years of professional experience and personal education in the US, Brussels and Croatia have been put to work to establish a premier consulting enterprise with a long term vision to service specific client needs. Vlahovic Group represents a new kind of business in Croatia advising clients to understand political processes and institutional design that govern and regulate people, businesses and organizations.

Our mission is to provide the highest quality professional representation for clients whose interests are impacted by decision makers in the Parliament, Government and other national and local government agencies.
We present our clients’ viewpoints based on facts and common sense in a highly effective and ethical manner that garners the attention and respect of all parties.
Our approach is designed to provide high value public policy outcomes that add to the success of our clients.
Approach to clients
Our clients are our number one priority and we work hard to develop deep relationships that last over time. We also love the energy and subsequent synergy that comes from getting to know a new client – understanding their issues and developing a tailored strategy to help them capitalize on an opportunity or manage a threatening situation. Whether the client turns to us on short notice when facing a public policy crisis or chooses us as a new Zagreb/Brussels partner – we value each and every opportunity.
The firm is based on four main pillars: government relations, lobbying, strategic communications and EU-funded projects. We combine and mix these services accordingly on a case by case basis. Our first step when working with a client is always to get a deep understanding for an issue. In the second phase, we research and design a global strategy and identify and agree upon key stakeholders. The third and often the most demanding phase is full implementation, where we use all resources and tools available to promote the interests of our client.
Brussels and EU affairs
Vlahovic group has offices in Zagreb and Brussels and associates in Croatia and other EU and Eastern European countries. Our Brussels activities are an important ingredient for monitoring, evaluating and influencing decisions in Croatia and vice versa. Due to a complex interaction of institutions, politicians, experts and media between Zagreb and Brussels, hands-on experience with EU affairs brings a competitive advantage to the Vlahovic Group team.
