Accurate guidance, created and updated by experts
Like attorneys everywhere, lawyers for the federal government need to provide timely, competent legal advice to your agency clients and be responsive to other stakeholders – but you also have that added pressure of being in the public eye as a government entity that operates on taxpayer dollars – so your public scrutiny is even higher.
- You can never say “no” to the legal issues that cross your desk.
- There’s constant budget uncertainty – and even the occasional shutdown – which can make it difficult to hire new lawyers or provide sufficient training for your staff.
- And, when you’re looking for practice guidance or a template to get started on an unfamiliar matter, you can’t always get what you need by asking colleagues, using Google, or some other unreliable way to get started.
- Finally, a high percentage of Federal workforce is at or nearing retirement – which means institutional knowledge will walk out the door along with them.
