Public Sector


Municipal entities face wide-ranging issues. To navigate these issues, they often seek outside counsel. Our Public Sector practice group offers substantial experience in counseling government entities and often serves them as special counsel or law director. We advise municipalities, townships, villages, school boards, commissions, and their public officials on matters concerning day-to-day operations to specific legal questions.

Of equal significance, sometimes private parties need assistance to achieve goals which are subject to local regulations. We are able to bridge an unnecessary communication divide, allowing private clients to achieve win-win results with the local community.

Our attorneys are versed in all aspects of local government law. We provide sound guidance on administrative appeals and litigation. We have experience with issues concerning municipal real estate law, economic development, zoning and land use, tax appeals, drafting of legislation, and the lawful exercise of police powers.
