The pace at which government is changing—“doing more with less,” “rightsizing,” and “streamlining”—makes the need for knowledgeable, practical, and timely counsel on navigating and implementing those changes essential. The Governance and Regulation division provides research and strategic counsel to clients who work with government both inside and out, assisting them in defining problems, developing partnerships, managing coalitions, engaging in consensus-building efforts, and implementing solutions.
