In matters of public policy, solid strategy begins with a clear understanding of the issues, the interests, and the influence needed to achieve results. Maine Street Solutions, a public affairs and consulting service of Verrill, is at the nexus of cutting-edge public policy, legislative advocacy, and the traditional practice of law. We help clients transform problems into opportunities.
