Vandeventer Black’s Municipal and Local Government attorneys team with our Government Contract attorneys to represent local government, public authorities and administrative agencies. An intricate group of federal, state and local statutory requirements and regulations govern such entities. We understand these special concerns, and we are prepared to help guide our clients with a focus on finding practical solutions.
We have assisted public entity clients with public procurement, real estate and financial transactions, employment issues, freedom of information and public meeting requirements, police and fire department, zoning, building code, ordinances, ethics, conflicts of interest and other compliance issues.
We focus on preventive law to help our clients evaluate risks, and avoid disputes, or for those risks and disputes that cannot be avoided, we help identify them early to develop prompt, effective and cost-efficient solutions. Our training and internal assessments improve our clients’ processes, and, when needed, we provide in-the-field assessments and advice to identify issues and formulate solutions.
Our team members include veteran attorneys with practical experiences holding related degrees and registrations, and trained and certified mediators and arbitrators.
