Public Entity PDF Print

 

Our firm has successfully served public entities in a wide-range of roles, working with the governing body, board members and other professionals to represent the interests of the public entity and the residents they serve. We are sensitive to the legal, political, and every day challenges involved in representing public entities, whether we are serving as General Counsel, Special Counsel, Litigation Counsel, Prosecutor or Public Defender.

General Counsel

We assist public entities as general counsel, providing day-to-day services to ensure the orderly and efficient conduct of public business. We draft ordinances, resolutions, contracts and RFPs, as well as provide guidance on public meeting requirements, public bidding procedures, procurement issues, labor negotiations and land use. Our attorneys have experience representing all types of public entities, including municipalities, counties, county freeholder boards, library commissions, county colleges and municipal utility authorities. We are also familiar with the appropriate law specific to public entities.

Special Counsel

As special counsel, the firm’s attorneys provide advice on various issues such as campaign finance and political contributions, ethics, environmental issues and regulatory matters. Our experience as Government Affairs Agents (lobbyists) assists our clients in securing funding from and implementing policy before state and federal agencies.

As special counsel, we have prepared RFPs for use in public energy related projects, advised on solar and other renewable energy issues, and provided legal guidance on land use applications of energy and utility installations. We have also represented public entities in disputes with public utilities, including intervention in rate cases before the Board of Public Utilities.

Litigation Counsel

Our firm has extensive experience handling special litigation matters on behalf of public entities, including defense of wrongful termination suits, discrimination cases, land use, civil rights, and constitutional violations. We have also represented public entities in defense of personal injury or other negligence-based claims. We understand the Tort Claims Act, and other bodies of law specifically impacting litigation and municipalities and other public entities.

Municipal Court

In municipal court matters, we effectively resolve cases timely and fairly while vigorously representing our client, whether it is the municipality as the prosecutor or individual defendants as public defender. We treat all individuals with respect and courtesy and ensure that they are properly represented before the court. We work hard to reach a fair resolution of the matter for the benefit of our client, but, if necessary, we are prepared to vigorously try cases before the municipal court.
