Public Entities

Representing local governments and public entities in New Jersey is one of our specialties. There are many different forms of government in our state and there are many authorities and agencies created by the state, counties and various municipalities. At KS&L, we are familiar with all of them and handle nearly all of their legal needs.

Collectively, all of the partners at KS&L have over 75 years of experience in handling local government law matters. Every partner either currently serves or has served as general counsel for several public entities.
