General Counsel Services. Hundreds of statutes and thousands of regulations, court decisions and administrative rulings impact the operation of Michigan municipalities. To sort through this thicket, public officials and employees need competent, experienced legal advice provided by a firm whose members have themselves served as elected public officials or have been assisting them for decades. We have the knowledge and expertise to advise and defend our municipal clients on recurring issues as well as issues raised for the first time. We handle the broad array of issues faced by government. Several of our attorneys co-author the ICLE book in this area of law.
