Public Agency Litigation

Litigation involving municipalities and public agencies presents unique challenges. Cities and agencies not only want to win the case, but they must serve the public interest, communicate with their constituents and work with the media, legislators, community groups and other public agencies.
 
With its long history and extensive experience in all aspects of municipal and special districts law and litigation, Best Best & Krieger LLP’s attorneys understand the many dimensions of litigation. We approach a lawsuit mindful of all of these perspectives. Accordingly, BB&K has in-house litigators to fight the lawsuit, former members of the media to help communicate the public agencies’ messages and goals and legislative advocates in Sacramento and Washington, D.C., to meet with legislators and agency officials.
 
Proactive Guidance
Prevention is less expensive and usually more effective in achieving a city’s or public agency’s goals. Therefore, our attorneys take a proactive approach, identifying potential areas of liability, advising on contract terms, reviewing policies and practices, and offering strategies to anticipate litigation. Because we are the city attorney to more than 35 cities and general counsel for more than 100 public agencies, our public law attorneys all have experience working with clients to avoid lawsuits and to minimize adverse consequences if prevention does not stop the lawsuit.
 
Extensive Experience
Consistent with our size and experience representing public agencies, our team of attorneys litigate a broad range of matters, including:


We have represented clients in all California state courts, at both the trial and appellate levels, and federal courts, including the United State Supreme Court. We also regularly appear for clients before regulatory bodies and testify before legislatures to assist our litigation strategy. Finally, we have extensive experience resolving disputes through mediation, arbitration and informal negotiated settlement.

Cost-Efficient & Effective Service
We are mindful that we are spending the public’s money when we litigate. Therefore, we provide budgets of litigation costs and reports of the attorney’s fees and costs incurred to date. We will also provide estimates of the likelihood of success. While the chances of success are difficult to predict and change over the course of a case, we believe we owe our clients our best sense of the merits of the case. Taken together, these allow the client to evaluate the cost effectiveness of our services and make better strategic decisions on how to handle the case.

BB&K is helping public agencies navigate Public Records Act compliance with our new Advanced Records Center. Combining legal know-how with cutting-edge technology, ARC provides comprehensive and cost-effective support for all records-related matters, including PRA requests. To learn more, visit the ARC page or email ARC@bbklaw.com
