Within the sector, our dedicated industry teams focus on Federal, State and Local Government. We also have cross-disciplinary specialist teams, such as the Climate Change & Sustainability and Fire & Emergency Services teams, who work across all levels of government and offer a holistic view of the business and legal landscape.
