Lockridge Grindal Nauen’s attorneys and government relations professionals have over three decades of experience representing governmental clients of all types on complex issues throughout the Midwest and in Washington, D.C., including:
From complex environmental clean-up matters and land use decisions to condemnation proceedings and development issues, LGN attorneys have the skills and experience to represent our clients vigorously, ethically, and efficiently.
LGN investigates claims of employment discrimination, harassment, and retaliation on behalf of local governments. These investigations provide elected officials with the information they need to make important, and sometimes controversial, personnel decisions and provide assurance to residents that matters are investigated and resolved fairly.
Our employment lawyers have represented large and small cities, counties, park districts, and regional entities in complex cases including class actions, employment discrimination claims, and detailed investigations into law enforcement departments and contracting disputes that required outside counsel.
Lockridge Grindal Nauen advises a wide range of clients regarding e-discovery issues both before and during litigation. We take the time to understand the unique aspects of each client’s electronic systems and collaboratively design a program or litigation plan that is defensible, efficient, and reduces costs.
The greatest cost savings in e-discovery involve implementing defensible retention policies before litigation and ensuring those policies are followed. Lockridge Grindal Nauen can work with you to develop and implement information governance policies that can significantly reduce e-discovery costs once litigation occurs.
With the knowledge of the challenges local units of government face, the team at LGN works with our clients to navigate the legislative process at the state and federal levels to meet local needs relating to funding for capital investment projects, land use, economic development, and transportation.
By collaborating with local, state, and federal units of government, the team at LGN helps local officials address the priorities of their respective communities.
