Special Counsel

There are times when the existing legal counsel for a community needs the assistance of an outside law firm.  Sometimes the need is due to a conflict of interest, and other times a community needs someone with specific practice experience.  Over the years, the local government lawyers of Wood + Lamping have served in the role of special counsel for numerous communities in a number of unique projects, such as litigating a particular lawsuit, pursuing appeals, and counseling on labor and employment matters.  Whatever the reason, rest assured that Wood + Lamping will represent your community with the zeal and determination that we have shown for solving the problems of our long-term clients.  We assist in-house law directors and solicitors with various special counsel assignments, including the following:
