Disputes with governmental agencies sometimes call for diplomatic finesse and other times demand aggressive advocacy.
The key is to know which approach fits the case, and then effectively implement it. McGrath North’s attorneys understand that it is vital to quickly work with the client to map out a strategy that is precisely tailored to meet the client’s objectives. Once that strategy is set, it is equally important to focus on proactive execution of the strategy to avoid having a governmental investigation or enforcement action linger unnecessarily.
Often, governmental disputes arise at the same time as related lawsuits involving private parties. In those cases, McGrath North’s attorneys work with their clients to develop an integrated plan for resolving all of the disputes. In addition, we always coordinate with our clients on necessary public communication strategies, which can be critically important in matters of this nature.
Our firm has significant experience with disputes involving federal, state and local agencies across a broad range of areas including in part land use and zoning, environmental and work force regulation.
