Each of the attorneys in the section has specialized knowledge and experience in areas unique to local government and local government relations, such as zoning, land use, public bidding, construction, utilities, and lobbying.

LS Attorneys also represent local governments in cable franchise renewals and regulation of telecommunications as well as cable and utility companies that maintain facilities in municipal street rights-of-ways.  This work includes negotiation of encroachment agreements and preparation of rights-of-way ordinances.
