Government + Public Agencies


Public entities are well-served in most matters by their internal counsel. However, when governments around the world and municipalities around the corner have special projects requiring outside legal representation, Morrison & Foerster often is selected to assist in representing the interests of the public. These engagements span a range of matters that require specialized capabilities. For public agencies, we deliver the same attentiveness, skill, and resources that we do for our private sector clients, with sensitivity to the unique responsibilities of government.

Our Public Agency practice encompasses all the areas in which we serve private clients, and many that are unique to government entities, such as advice on representation in complex regulatory and litigation proceedings, counseling on governance and ethics, assistance with novel transactions, and legislative and regulatory developments. Our work touches every level, from multinational organizations, to national, state and local governments, and from sensitive security issues, to nationally critical public events, to complex reorganizations of vital services such as public transportation.
