In relation to government, we represent elected and appointed officials, political subdivisions, local and parish entities, and state agencies. We handle most matters particular to state and local governmental entities and officers, including municipal liability and other litigation, regulatory and administrative matters, response to governmental ethics investigations and legislative audit inquiries, election support, preparation of policies and procedures, and responding to public records requests. We are also well-versed in public bid law and procurement matters. We represent state agencies and political subdivisions in property rights acquisition and expropriation, also known as inverse condemnation, for roads, utilities, levees, and other public projects. We also offer comprehensive legislative support services, including drafting legislation and testifying in committee, as well as drafting and negotiating regulations and ordinances.
