Local Government Attorneys in Cincinnati

Municipal law pertains to laws specific to cities, townships, boroughs, and municipalities, as well as the governmental entities contained within them. In today’s complex legal environment, your local government relies on extensive legal expertise to properly serve its citizens. Local governments address a broad range of issues unique to municipal levels:

  • Business tax incentives
  • Eminent domain
  • Finance
  • Government ethics
  • Land use planning
  • Public labor and employment law
