A recent court ruling has changed the legal landscape for some of America’s largest law firms, with a court ruling allowing them to pay government agencies, including the U.S. Department of Justice, for legal work.
The court ruled on Wednesday that the law firms should be allowed to receive fees for their work, with the DOJ agreeing to pay them in full.
As part of a settlement reached with the Justice Department, the law firm must also set aside any potential profit from its work.
In a statement released on Thursday, the company said that it is pleased with the decision and expects to make the changes necessary to comply with it.
“We are pleased that the court has recognized that law firms are indeed providing public benefits to the government and that the DOJ is taking the appropriate actions,” the statement said.
“As we begin the process of setting up the new system, we are also working with the Attorney General to ensure that the payments we receive will not affect the availability of certain services for the public.”
While the government has not specifically ruled out the payment system, it has been the practice for many years to pay law firms through a form of public-private partnerships, or PPPs, that allow them to collect fees from the government.
These payments are typically made through a government grant or through the use of private contractors.
While these are generally viewed as more efficient than hiring private workers, the U,S.
government has also been criticized for allowing law firms to receive significant fees from agencies such as the Drug Enforcement Agency, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
This type of arrangement is also sometimes used by the federal government to pay for services such as building renovations.
Law firms, in their statement, said they have always been upfront about how they are using the government grants to do work for the government, but have not done so as they have done with the PPP system.
“It is important to note that the payment we receive through these grants is not an actual payment from the DOJ, but rather is a contribution to the cost of our work,” the firm’s statement said, adding that the firm is working with federal agencies to set up a new system.
This is not the first time the law practice has received government funding to do legal work for law firms.
According to the Huffington Post, in the late 1990s, the government started paying law firms up to $150,000 per year to do certain work.
Some of the work included helping the government track and monitor the activities of foreign officials.
But in 2015, the Trump administration pulled back the funding and instead allowed law firms the option of using the money to fund their own legal work as well.
The move left some legal-related firms, such as Mayer Brown, scrambling to figure out how to get their work done without the government assistance.
“I think the Trump Administration needs to make sure that there is no future for us, that we don’t have a way to fund our own legal representation, and that we get out of the PPR [pay to win] business,” Mayer Brown law partner Michael Pardoe told the Huffington Report.
Pardee also noted that law firm clients are sometimes uncomfortable working with government officials.
“The public relations strategy has been, ‘We’re going to get government to help us and that’s the end of it,'” he said.
