Rupp Baase attorneys represent counties, towns, cities, public authorities, and other public entities in a wide variety of matters. Innovative fee arrangements are available.
We have extensive experience with claims, litigation, and special proceedings such as proceedings pursuant to CPLR Article 78. Our attorneys regularly appear in state and federal court as well as before administrative law judges. We fight vigorously against false, fraudulent, and abusive claims and litigation, and protect the public purse by guarding against claims for exaggerated damages.
Our municipal and public-entity clients trust us with labor and employment matters, including handling of grievances, PERB charges, and employee discipline. We also offer comprehensive environmental law services, from counseling on projects and matters of public concern to litigation. Another highlight of our services is our ability to counsel on land-use issues, and to litigate challenges to zoning, assessment, and eminent-domain determinations.
