  • State, County & Municipal

    We represent state, county, and municipal government entities as outside general counsel and on an ad hoc basis as specific legislative, regulatory, transactional, and litigation needs arise. We have represented many of our government clients for decades, and we offer practical solutions that reflect our deep understanding of state and local government practice, as well as the needs and desires of local constituencies.

  • Transit-Oriented Development

    Transit projects are a constant presence in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan region, and these projects present a variety of complex legal issues for regulatory agencies and private-sector entities. Our attorneys have represented clients in large-scale transactions related to all aspects of transit-oriented development projects, condemnation proceedings related to transit projects, public-private partnerships (PPP), and other transit-related regulatory and dispute-resolution proceedings.

    In addition to representing the government and private-sector clients in transit-related condemnation proceedings, we also provide knowledgeable and results-oriented representation for government agencies, property owners, developers, and other private-sector clients in other development-related condemnation matters.
