Government, State and Local

Serving State and Local Government Authorities

Hogan Marren Babbo & Rose, Ltd. has a long history of assisting state and local governments, municipalities and other public sector entities with a wide variety of legal issues ranging from human resources and employment contract disputes, to zoning and land use, to general contracting matters.  The attorneys at our firm have served as counsel to municipal authorities, cities, counties, townships, park and library districts, educational institutions and other governmental authorities throughout the State of Illinois.  Through these experiences, our lawyers have developed a solid understanding of state and local government processes and procedures.  We harness this knowledge to help our public entity clients resolve both day to day and more sophisticated legal challenges involving an extensive range of legal matters, including: 

HMBR attorneys frequently attend township and municipal meetings and assist our public entity clients in drafting and amending legislation, codes and ordinances as well as internal bylaws and procedures.  We also assist our clients in responding to subpoenas, FOIA requests and Open Meetings Act requests, and are often called upon to represent our clients in administrative code violation hearings.  Additionally, as part of our State and Local Government Practice, HMBR attorneys have represented municipalities and police officers facing § 1983 claims and lawsuits. 

Whether the matter involves helping a municipal board organize and conduct a meeting, negotiating a quick resolution to a dispute, or litigating a complex case in federal, state or local court, our attorneys are committed to providing the support and guidance our clients need to fulfill their public duties and responsibilities.
