Rosen Hagood’s Administrative and Government Law practice group focuses on legal issues related to the operation of government and municipal agencies of all types. We have decades of experience with a wide variety of clients, from school districts, municipalities, counties, special purpose agencies, and water and sewer utilities to landowners and developers dealing with condemnation and zoning matters. Because we represent a broad spectrum of clients, the breadth of our experience gives us unique insight into the perspectives and priorities of the parties on both sides of an issue. Our collective firm experience in administrative and government law makes us effective and strategic advocates.
Administrative and government law is unique and challenging for several reasons. It is highly regulated, and statute and ordinance driven, and the laws upon which it depends are constantly changing. As practitioners who work in this field daily, we strive to remain current on the latest regulations and changes, which can be pivotal. For example, every municipality has its own procurement policies, which typically differ from the procurement policy of a business. Familiarity with the details of these policies can mean the difference between a successful bid on a project and being eliminated from contention due to a technicality.
Government law is also very relationship-driven. Organizations are far more than procedures and metrics. They are intricate networks of human relationships, held together by shared experiences, informal communication, culture, values, and most importantly, shared objectives. In our long-standing service as counsel to local governmental agencies, we prioritize these relationships and advance our clients’ objectives, most often for the betterment of our community.
Our government-related work also spans a range of legal subject areas and topics. Local government law actually consists of a number of different areas of legal knowledge grouped together around its applicability to each distinct client. Our firm’s extensive nongovernmental work in a variety of legal areas enhances our ability to be effective in our administrative and government law practice.
Experience. Relationships. Knowledge. These are what make Rosen Hagood the law firm of choice for government and administrative issues.
