Our Public Affairs practice group works to strengthen the relationships between our clients (both business and non-profit) and public entities, including state, federal and local agencies, authorities and regulatory or legislative bodies. Our lawyers understand the inner workings of government, policy-making and enforcement and can advise clients of the implications of public laws and regulations for their private concerns and practices.
We represent clients, both corporate and individual, before various municipal, state and federal agencies, including the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), and taxing, zoning, licensing and planning agencies at all levels.
We also understand the unique needs of not-for-profit schools, cultural institutions and social service providers. We represent a variety of non-profit, tax-exempt and charitable entities in a wide range of necessary legal services, including organization, employment issues, real estate matters, tax advice, dispute resolution and business counseling.
