Special Commissions

The New Mexico Attorney General is charged with defending and representing the legal interests and sovereignty of the people of the State of New Mexico, including the legal interests of all state agencies. Due to the scale of such representation, the Attorney General delegates the legal representation of state agencies in certain legal matters to state agency-employed attorneys and outside counsel as needed through the issuance of Special Commissions.

Any attorney who represents a state agency in legal matters is required to obtain a Special Commission from the Government Litigation Division prior to representation. To request a Special Commission, please contact us.
