Many Pennsylvania townships, boroughs, and other municipal bodies are too small to have full-time staff, let alone full-time counsel knowledgeable about the laws and rules affecting governmental bodies. It is essential that local officials know the legal obligations of municipalities and municipal authorities in matters relating to public meetings, ordinances, taxation, right-to-know requests and public contracting to avoid unnecessary liability.
We have considerable experience advising and representing local government entities such as:
- School districts
- Local and regional economic development corporations
- Transportation authorities
- Municipal, utility and health care authorities
Our lawyers facilitate compliance with statutory and regulatory requirements on matters ranging from the proper conduct of public meetings to annual reporting and audit requirements. Our experience with municipal law helps clients stay current with the rapidly changing legal landscape for local government.
Our firm also serves as counsel to institutional clients of all kinds, including colleges and private schools. We assist with licensing and regulatory matters, employment issues, contracting, organizational changes, management problems, and any other legal obstacle that may arise during the course of day-to-day operations.
