Public Law in the public interest.
Our lawyers provide the tools to strengthen and preserve public services. We empower policy makers to further their policy objectives while minimizing legal risks. Although we are a “private” firm, we work seamlessly with our clients to form
a collaborative team with in-house staff to identify workable solutions to complex problems, develop strategy and implement solutions, whether the path is at the bargaining table, city council chambers, the courtroom, or the ballot box.
RPLG Partner Jon Holtzman and RPPG Managing Director of Government Affairs Dane Hutchings will speak on panels at the League of California Cities’ Annual Conference this year.
