Orlando Local Government & Municipal Lawyer
Although we often talk about the need for legal representation for private businesses, local governments and municipal corporations often require experienced counsel to deal with many of the same legal issues. For example, a city council needs to contract for a City Attorney, or a local school board requires assistance from an attorney who knows how to handle a civil rights lawsuit from a disgruntled employee.
If your central Florida municipality needs expert legal services, the Orlando local government & municipal lawyers at DSK Law can help. We understand the intricacies of local government and how issues may vary between different jurisdictions. Whether you need advice on a single issue or more comprehensive representation, DSK Law can function as your in-house legal department.
What Type of Legal Problems Do Local Governments Need Help With?
As with private employers in Florida, local governments frequently require assistance complying with a multitude of employment-related civil rights laws, including the anti-discrimination provisions of Title VII, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act. We also represent municipalities in defending against lawsuits brought under the Fair Labor Standards Act as well as unemployment insurance and workers’ compensation claims.
In addition, we provide full-service representation for a variety of elected and appointed local governing bodies, including:
- City Councils
- Code Enforcement Boards
- Community Development Districts
- Personnel Review Boards
- Planning and Zoning Commissions
- School Boards
Our background in business law provides us with unique strengths when it comes to representing municipal governments. For example, we know how to negotiate and enforce a contract, such as a collective bargaining agreement or a bid for services. We also know how to deal with complex regulatory matters like drafting a zoning ordinance and ensuring municipal boards comply with open meeting laws.
