Brooks & DeRensis represents many Massachusetts public agencies, cities, and towns. The consistent growth of our municipal practice reflects an effective problem-solving approach to advising and representing elected and appointed officials. We assist in the day-to-day decision making, planning, and problem-solving faced by Town Managers, licensing boards, county commissions and treasurers, sheriffs, boards of selectmen, registrars of deeds, planning boards, police departments, boards of appeal, building inspectors, special permit granting authorities, historic district commissions, boards of assessors, conservation commissions, and local study committees.
From their decades of public work, each of our municipal attorneys is known for cost-effective work and an aptitude for problem prevention. That work extends to:
Town Counsel services
Collective bargaining and labor relations
Competitive bidding and procurement
State ethics laws
Land use, real estate, historic preservation, eminent domain
