PRACTICE AREAS

Municipal Law

Twomey Latham’s municipal law group offers a comprehensive knowledge of local laws and regulations based upon years of government and community service. Businesses, towns, villages, county agencies and civic associations recognize our fierce dedication to local issues and our leadership in the areas of zoning, environmental law, real estate, taxation and quality of life issues at the local level.

The experience of our attorneys as elected and appointed government officials make us particularly well-suited to advise clients who face major regulatory battles before local, state and federal agencies. The firm also serves as special counsel to towns and villages and planning and zoning boards during difficult local administrative hearings and the litigation that may result from tough decisions.
We stress the pragmatic resolution of issues, wherever possible, but we always remain fierce advocates on behalf of our clients inside and outside the courtroom.

In addition to administrative matters and related litigation, the firm represents municipalities in commercial contracts, Brownfields redevelopment projects, real estate transactions, conservation easements, privatization of municipal facilities, affordable housing projects, and an array of solid waste management issues. We also provide advice on the preparation and development of land use plans, zoning and other code amendments, and farmland and open space conservation legislation.
