Municipal & Government Law
Pietragallo‘s Municipal and Government Law team provides a broad range of services to businesses, organizations and individuals needing to navigate government, its laws and processes. The team also provides legal services to local, state and federal entities in their day-to-day operations and litigation. Attorneys who have worked in both the public and private sector can better represent, not only municipalities and government agencies, but also businesses and non-government clients who must face the challenges of navigating intricate government processes.
For businesses, organizations and individuals, having counsel who understands the processes, regulations, ordinances and politics of the public sector is key to their success in getting things done. The Pietragallo Municipal and Government Law team knows the pitfalls involved in negotiating the government maze and have successfully attained clients’ goals.
For municipalities, state and local governmental entities such as, cities, townships, authorities, commissions, councils, boards and committees, having counsel who understands the private sector, the State Ethics Code, the political landscape and who has experience mitigating damage is instrumental to achieving its goal of meeting its residents’ needs and improving their experience with government.
