Get the expertise you need, fast
As a Local Government lawyer, like any other lawyer, you’ve got to provide timely, competent legal advice to your clients, but you and your clients are also in the public eye and need to keep the confidence and faith of taxpayers and other stakeholders.
- You must handle anything and every legal issue that comes in the door.
- The law changes quickly and you sometimes struggle with the tension of having worked on a similar matter previously, but now need to quickly get back up to speed for whatever issue is burning up your desk.
- Budgets are always on the brain – especially when tax revenues are down, the ability to hire new lawyers is unpredictable
- Finally, lawyers for many local governments are at or near retirement – which means institutional knowledge will walk out the door along with them.
