Municipal and Government
Chambliss attorneys regularly provide counsel to local government entities and represent them before state and federal administrative agencies and in state and federal trial and appellate courts. With present and former city attorneys, former elected judges, and judicial law clerks, we are well-versed in the issues municipalities and other government entities face.
Municipal and government law is an area where our attorneys have been continually recognized for their high levels of client service and excellent results. Serving as special counsel to city attorneys, Administrative Hearing Officer for municipalities, and outside counsel to governmental bodies, we understand the legal, regulatory, and operating challenges governmental entities face on a daily basis. We are highly responsive and intuitive, anticipating their needs and addressing them with forward-thinking solutions.
With our wide range of municipal and governmental experience – both personally and through years of counseling our clients – we have counseled local government entities on finance, operational, and legal strategies. We regularly advise on a variety of challenges involving unique legal principles that apply to governmental entities. These matters include Constitutional law, governmental tort liability, legislative enactments, land use planning and zoning, governmental bidding and procurement, eminent domain, government employee relations, open meeting and public records issues, and law enforcement. We are known for our practical approach and way of simplifying the complex so our clients can focus on better serving their communities.
