We advise local authorities (federal, state and local governments) as well as public companies and outsourced legal entities of all legal forms and sectors: for example universities, colleges and other public research institutions, associations, chambers as well as church corporations under public law.
We also provide advisory services to ministries, supreme federal and state authorities, whose issues require a high degree of understanding of the national and European law in a possibly international context.
Efficiency, effectiveness, thrift, transparency and proximity to citizens are the main objectives of the public administration. We therefore use ongoing monitoring of current issues at all decision-making levels.

Our experts have comprehensive industry expertise and hands-on experience in these key areas to provide professional, expert and tailored support.
