Public Entities and Improvement Districts

Our attorneys have served as general counsel to many of California's special districts and municipalities, including cities, water and sanitation districts, metropolitan districts, business improvement districts, and others for over 50 years. Our firm provides services regarding the formation and ongoing representation of these entities in the areas of municipal law, finance, water law, environmental law, litigation, and other related areas. We handle all areas of development, permitting, planning, zoning, condemnation, eminent domain and environmental matters; and matters on behalf of both private property owners and public agency clients. Our firm regularly makes appearances on behalf of its clients before a wide range of administrative bodies, including the Board of Supervisors, City Councils, Planning Commissions and LAFCO.


We provide services that will allow employers to better understand the legal issues that may impact the employment relationship while maximizing their goals and long-range plans.
