Michael Best’s Regional Government Law group works with government entities and private sector organizations that have an interest in public policy. Our team members are highly experienced public servants and lawyers who understand the complexities of a dynamic regulatory and legislative environment.
Often, the solutions to our private sector clients’ issues lie in their ability to help shape public policy—and to see that it’s properly implemented into law. Leveraging our wealth of knowledge and experience, we offer our corporate and nonprofit clients comprehensive, strategic counsel on all facets of local, state, and regional legislative and regulatory processes.
Local governments also face complex legal issues as they work to serve the needs of their constituents. We have considerable experience—and success—in representing the diverse interests of local entities, from municipalities and local agencies to school districts, colleges, and quasi-governmental entities. Among other issues, we help our governmental clients comply with public records and open meeting laws. Our wide-ranging experience also includes land use regulation, government relations, tax law, and administrative law.
