California Government

Greenberg Traurig’s Sacramento office opened in 2005 when Livingston & Mattesich Law Corporation, founded in 1982, joined the firm. Today, these attorneys and government law and policy professionals have statewide reputations for effectiveness and integrity. The Los Angeles Times described the group as “one of the more influential law and lobbyist firms” in Sacramento. The Sacramento Bee called the team “one of the Capital’s elite.”

The Sacramento Government Law & Policy Practice has decades of experience with the legislative process and the long-term relationships to help clients achieve their legislative goals. Members of the team have represented clients’ interests in the legislature on hundreds of public policy issues concerning the environment, technology, civil justice, general business practices, and industry-specific legislation. They have led industry coalitions not only in stopping harmful bills, regulations and enforcement actions, but also in obtaining tort reform through legislation and initiatives. The team also has wide-ranging experience in hearings and other administrative proceedings by which government agencies decide about permits, licenses, fees, trademarks, public contracts, state audits, and public records.

The history of cooperative relationships and aggressive action in all three branches of government gives Greenberg Traurig attorneys the capability to follow legislation through the implementing regulation and into court. They have resolved many legislative problems with litigation or regulatory influence, and many a regulatory problem or lawsuit with a change in statute.
