League of California CitiesDeepening their commitment to supporting local government in California, Renne Public Law Group (RPLG) has become a League of California Cities (LOCC) Gold-Level Partner for 2018. Based in San Francisco, RPLG practices throughout California, representing a diverse group of public and private clients in need of effective, responsive and ethical legal assistance. The firm was launched in 2018 by four key partners: Louise Renne, Jonathan “Jon” Holtzman, Teresa Stricker and Art Hartinger. Additionally, Jon Holtzman and Linda Ross have been selected by the League to write an amicus brief on the Cal Fire Local 2881 v. CalPERS case, a case now before the California Supreme Court that could have a material impact on pension reform in the State.

“The League values the expertise of the Renne Public Law Group as one of the leading firms dealing with labor and employment law issues, and appreciates the efforts of Jon Holtzman and Linda Ross for authoring the League’s recent friend-of-the-court brief on pension issues,” said Carolyn Coleman, Executive Director for the League of California Cities.

Renne Public Law Group was formed in March 2018 and brought together thought leaders in the municipal law realm. The deep experience of the firm’s partners also brought immediate clients, including City/County of San Francisco, City of Santa Rosa, City of Fresno, City of San Jose, City of Stockton, City of Los Angeles, Town of Corte Madera, and other cities large and small throughout California.

“Renne Public Law Group Partners are passionate about California local government; we know the League is an essential partner in helping local governments succeed and is a great conduit to share our thoughts and help other cities,” stated Jon. “By becoming a League Partner, RPLG affirms its dedication to our city clients. With our past success in working with the League, I foresee a lasting partnership.”

Established in 1898, the League of California Cities is a nonprofit statewide association that advocates for cities with the state and federal governments and provides education and training services to elected and appointed city officials.
