In addition to its private sector work, Moore & Bogener, Inc. also represents public entities as part of its municipal law practice. Generally, municipal law is the representation of counties, cities, and special districts in matters related to taxation, land development, employment, and any other matter impacting local government. This requires familiarity with the specific local government municipal code, the Brown Act, the Fair Political Practices Act, the Public Records Act, the Government Code, the Election Code, and Public Contract Code, among others.
This extends not only to city council meetings, staff meetings, or discussions with members of the public, but also representation in court for various purposes including obtaining warrants for code enforcement, nuisance abatement actions, opposing Pitchess Motions, and defending the entity through trial in standard litigation.
The Firm has represented cities, fire protection districts, community service districts, and joint powers authorities in all aspects of their legal needs.
