Services for Cities, Towns, Counties and Municipal Governments
Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP has an extensive history of helping local government leaders address a variety of issues through creative legal solutions. This tradition continues as our attorneys log thousands of miles across Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio each year, learning about local issues and advising community leaders on best practices.
We help local governments draft a variety of different types of ordinances, regulations and policies across many topics including various codes, zoning, ethics, pretreatment, air pollution, employee benefits, personnel, indemnification, administrative hearing procedures, enhanced access, appropriations, parking and fees.
We serve as counsel to governing boards, such as county commissioners, city councils, county councils, boards of public works, park boards, ethics boards, boards of public safety, election boards, housing authority boards, plan commissions, alcoholic beverage boards, bond bank boards and utility boards.
Our attorneys are active in respected organizations such as:
- A strategic partner of Accelerate Indiana Municipalities (formerly known as Indiana Association of Cities and Towns)
- Association of Indiana Counties
- Indiana Association of County Commissioners
- National Association of Bond Lawyers
- Kentucky League of Cities
Our attorneys are included in The Bond Buyer’s Municipal Marketplace (“The Red Book”), a collection of nationally recognized bond counsel. We are also listed as approved bond counsel by the USDA Rural Development and the State of Indiana for projects financed through the Rural Development Program and the State’s Revolving Loan Fund (SRF) programs.
Our attorneys have defended municipalities and counties in hundreds of lawsuits. These actions include annexations, civil rights cases, police-action shootings, employment matters, road-design issues, environmental enforcements and redevelopment projects.
