Illinois' Governor Transition Act outlines what the outgoing official needs to do prior to the governor-elect taking office, however, there is limited guidance on what the governor-elect should do prior to entering office. When Gov. Bruce Rauner was transitioning into office, he relied on lawyers like Peter Friedman to direct him.

"Between myself and my co-counsel, one of us was always at the office, every day. And even if we were not at the office … all of these legal issues were very fluid and fast-moving, and we were available on-call all the time leading up to the governor's swearing-in," said Mr. Friedman.
