While clients in this sector are highly diverse, they share some universal common ground in that public sector organizations have very defined governance and funding structures which create specific challenges and objectives, when compared to private sector organizations.
The Public Sector & Crown Corporations Group within TDS is comprised of experienced and knowledgeable lawyers who understand the public sector and crown corporation space well and are sensitive to some of the unique aspects of how they do their business that are important to clients in this sector.

In order to better understand the evolving needs of public sector organizations and crown corporations, our lawyers who act for entities in this sector have a focus on the sector, in order to have a better and more complete understanding and appreciation for what crown corporation clients and clients in the public sector need from their lawyers.
