An understanding of intergovernmental relations (IGR) law helps clients in search of government relations solutions to business and legal issues. This complex area of the law requires experienced legal advocacy. The government relations attorney must understand the often complex legislative process at the local, state, and national levels. The most effective advocacy requires the lawyer to understand and use the rules of the regulatory or legislative process to identify or develop practical solutions.
Successful IGR requires the lawyer to analyze client problems with the goal of identifying practical, effective solutions beyond those typically provided by lobbying firms.
