MUNICIPAL & GOVERNMENTAL LAW

Allen Brothers delivers a full array of legal services to cities, townships, and counties around Metropolitan Detroit and across Southeastern Michigan.

The legal environment for counties and municipalities can be difficult and complex, and we help municipal clients navigate those challenges by anticipating, avoiding, and managing risk.

Our attorneys serve as general legal counsel and special counsel to local government, assisting with:

  • Open Public Meeting Act compliance
  • Resolutions, ordinances, and codes
  • Contract drafting, negotiation, and enforcement
  • Procurement
  • Labor negotiations and arbitrations
  • Employment policies and litigation
  • Criminal prosecutions
  • Public finance
  • Government and regulatory affairs
  • Environmental issues
  • Zoning and land use
  • Construction projects
  • Housing and development

Depending on the size and structure of the municipality, we work not only with elected leaders and bodies, but also with city managers, planning commissions, zoning boards, and administrative departments, providing representation and counsel on the issues that directly impact their interests.
