Municipal Law


Municipalities face unique challenges as they must navigate multiple layers of incremental regulation, emanating from federal, state, county and local laws. Complicating matters is that just as no two people are alike, neither are any two municipalities. As in other contexts, clients have varying degrees of sophistication and possess rural, suburban and urban characteristics. The result is a landscape where legal advice which is well suited to one municipality may be inappropriate for another in practical application.

We are accustomed to these nuances having advised the full spectrum of rural, suburban and urban governing bodies from Nassau to Chautauqua, and from Westchester to Plattsburgh for over 50 years. Over the course of time, we have accumulated the experience to translate an understanding of the law into real world application to a diverse group of municipal clients located throughout New York State.
