Every company is impacted by public policy in numerous ways, from taxation and health care to environmental and energy policy. One word in a proposed bill or rule could have a huge impact on the company’s operations and bottom line. In-house counsel are often called upon to assist the company by being both a silent spectator monitoring governmental trends, and a vocal advocate for the company to key decision makers.
