Public sector activities

Do you operate in the public sector? At MAQS, we are well versed in the specific regulatory frameworks which govern your business and impose due process requirements in relation to individuals. Our group of specialists work primarily with clients in this sector, which includes colleges and universities, municipalities, county councils, and other public authorities. You can also turn to us if you are a company which, in the course of business, comes in contact with public authorities with influence over commercial activities.

This what we can assist you with

At MAQS, you will get assistance with everything from simpler day-to-day advice to complicated matters and litigation.
