English term or phrase: white papers, political agenda
We have prepared "white papers" analyzing all legal options....
We have suggested strategies to deal with the "political agenda"
TransLex
As a lawyer in Mexico...
Explanation:
we have prepared several of these for clients, for US purposes and the correct translation is "libro blanco" or "libros blancos", their purpose being to serve as a recording of all communications and documents executed in connection with a certain matter (a project, for example).

The sentence would be along the lines of: hemos preparado libros blancos mediante los cuales hemos analizado todas las opciones legales..."

As for political agenda, I would translate "hemos sugerido algunas estrategias tomando en consideración (or tomando en cuenta) la dirección política"

Political Agenda translated as Agenda Política is too literal and is not a term used in a political sense in Mexico (at least), so I would translate it as dirección política or simply "política gubernamental actual".

Best of luck on your translation!

"white papers" "Political Agenda"


Explanation:
Hi,

White papers is a term used in Poland as "Libro Rojo" containing private information which can be used against someone.
Political agenda is "Programa de actividad política" or simple: Agenda Política.

Hope this is of help.
