We regularly advise our municipal clients on the requirements of federal, state and local laws and regulations, and provide updates and counsel as appropriate or in response to specific inquiries. We have drafted or amended hundreds of zoning and general bylaws, ordinances, regulations, charters and special acts. We have also provided advice and guidance on the application of the Open Meeting Law and the Public Records Law. Our attorneys have served on the Open Meeting Law and Electronic Records Working Groups of the Massachusetts Municipal Law Association.
In addition, pursuant to the State Ethics Law, we have provided assistance in resolving a multitude of ethical issues pertaining to public officials’ financial interests in municipal contracts or other particular matters in which the municipality has an interest, as well as appearances of conflict.
