Politics & Policy

Pacifica offers unique experience and perspective on legal issues laden with political and policy implications.

Serving clients in the public eye and on issues of significant public interest requires a distinct, multidisciplinary approach and strategy. Pacifica attorneys have represented and advised elected officials, municipalities, major public entities, non-profit organizations, political committees, and private parties in this sensitive realm. Representative matters include policy planning and strategy, legislation drafting, high-visibility litigation, ethics reviews, internal investigations, initiative and elections issues, PDC compliance, and time-sensitive political concerns. Pacifica attorneys’ considerable work with such issues, and first-hand experience serving on numerous campaigns and in public positions, allows them to approach difficult questions not only with a technical, legal perspective but with a nuanced understanding of the larger context within which the issue must be addressed.
