Recent months have brought unprecedented challenges for governments of all types as they seek to provide safety, prosperity and equity for their citizens. In recent months, ESI’s Government and Public Policy team has worked with our clients across multiple levels of government to help them with both the nuts and bolts and big picture challenges in managing their finances, ensure their resiliency and enhancing inclusive economic opportunities.
