Government Law

Schenck Price Smith & King’s Government Law practice group has a long history and broad experience in representing government entities.  We have represented the State of New Jersey in defending various state agencies and government officials in complex regulatory and substantial litigation matters. 

Our representation of government entities includes extensive experience as general counsel to state institutions, colleges, county entities, municipalities of all sizes, utility authorities and land use boards.  Our general counsel experience and knowledge of the nuances of administrative law benefits these institutions in the areas of administration, governance and legislative aspects of government, including OPMA, OPRA and elections. SPSK also advises clients on redevelopment, Highlands issues, plan conformance, COAH, and water and sewer utilities.

Our Government Law team has extensive experience representing governmental entities with contractual disputes, union negotiations, employee discipline, civil service and PERC issues. Where needed, we work closely with our litigators, who have extensive experience defending public entities.

The same knowledge and experience our attorneys call on in representing public entities, gives us a significant advantage in representing companies and individuals in all areas of governmental, regulatory and administrative law. This includes development and redevelopment issues, as well as regulatory matters before the NJDEP, NJDCA, Division of Labor, Division of Taxation and other relevant agencies.  Additionally, SPSK attorneys regularly appear before the Office of Administrative Law regarding a wide variety of government issues.
