We provide advice on property issues (including negotiation, acquisition, and condemnation), insurance coverage and defense, public contracting, public meetings, public records, finance, system development charges, utility ratemaking, design and construction litigation, telecommunications, environmental and natural resources, energy, government ethics for public officials, franchise fees and privilege taxes, and other matters associated with conducting government affairs.
