Government: State and Local

Intimate knowledge of municipal laws, policies, regulations, and representatives is key to effective representation.

Representing state and local government entities – including counties, cities, towns, townships, redevelopment authorities, conventions and visitors’ bureaus, municipal utilities, zoning, works, safety, police, and fire boards – has been an integral part of KDDK’s practice throughout our 115-year history. Not only have we served as legal counsel for governmental units, many KDDK attorneys have extensive experience serving on such governmental boards. Just as we do our impressive list of private corporate clients, KDDK attorneys are able to advise and represent governmental clients on a wide-range of governmental issues, focusing on specialized areas of the law including labor and employment, eminent domain, annexation, property development and leasing, economic development, land use, taxation, sales and acquisitions, construction, and environmental law.
