We Can Help
There are other ways an Indiana municipal attorney may be of use to public officials. When you are seeking a party to serve as an underwriter’s counsel, an issuer’s counsel or a bond counsel for the sake of tax-exempt financing, a seasoned municipal lawyer can assist you accordingly. We have helped our clients mount legal defenses to lawsuits initiated by businesses or individuals in their jurisdiction, including those regarding rejections of constructions bids, premises liability personal injury suits, and/or denials of applications for licenses or permits.
