we were the first!

The firm petitioned the FAA for our Section 333 Exemption, to which we were the first NGO to receive said exemption, which we are proud to announce that we garnered the full pro-bono support of Akin Gump, LLP.  Akin Gump is consistently ranked as one of the top government relations practices in Washington, D.C.—both by publications and peers—the public law and policy practice draws on the considerable governmental and bipartisan political experience of their lawyers and advocacy professionals, including former Members of Congress, congressional staff and other lawyers with considerable experience in government service, many of whom also engage in outside political activities.  The explosive growth of government regulation and oversight over the last decade demands that Linking the World thinks expansively and creatively when developing and implementing our strategies. The nature of our work requires that our analytical and planning processes must encompass a careful evaluation of how government—local, state, federal or international—can, should and will impact our desired objectives.
