Focus on federalism
State governments represent local needs; they spend federal money; they regulate most services; they link local and global interests. They are big enough to affect national policy, yet they are flexible enough to adapt and experiment with policies that often paralyze Congress and federal agencies. Regardless of party, issue, or geography, our clients are passionate about using and preserving the role of states as laboratories of democracy. We therefore focus on state innovation as a catalyst for national policy and, increasingly, on federalism as a model for international relations and standard setting.
