At Gawthrop Greenwood, we have a long history of serving as solicitors for municipal authorities, townships, boroughs, police departments, zoning hearing boards and other governmental entities. Because of the breadth and impact of this area of the law, we provide advice and representation in areas such as land use, municipal finance, public contracts, law enforcement and other regulatory matters. Our attorneys understand the issues that governmental entities face and provide the legal support to address these challenges.
