Municipal Law

Under increasing pressure posed by state and federal government mandates and insufficient available funding, cities and public agencies must balance budgets, manage competing interests and serve their constituencies. Meeting all these needs requires a high level of regulatory and legal knowledge and experience, as well as public relations and political finesse.

Over 465 cities, counties, housing authorities, successor agencies and joint powers authorities rely on Best Best & Krieger LLP (BBK) for comprehensive, cost-effective counsel. BBK attorneys help clients successfully maneuver through legal complexities and governmental directives, enabling them to focus on providing superior service to their communities.
