Often in budget-constrained environments, public sector entities must balance pursuing opportunities with addressing needs, such as ageing infrastructure, ageing workforce, public/private partnerships, disaster preparedness, law enforcement liability and cyber risk preparedness.
With public dependence on this infrastructure and increasing regulatory scrutiny, government is more frequently held to account in law. Common themes include complex injunctions, damages claims against local governments for financial loss and challenges and torts arising from compliance and enforcement activities.
Apart from such professional liabilities, the public sector owns and manages large-scale assets. Often the state’s major employer, they also face the same workplace health and safety, property protection, industrial relations and liability issues as private sector organizations.
