Public Law

Gardere’s Public Law practice group focuses on analyzing and advocating for client’s legal and public policy positions. The team collaborates with clients to develop strategies for success, both in and outside of the courtroom. Whether it is providing analysis and briefing on trial and appellate matters or performing high-level, multistate statutory analysis of issues and policies affecting its clients, Gardere consistently exceeds expectations.

Our public law attorneys are adept in their ability to navigate bureaucracy to provide effective public law representation. We work with elected officials, municipalities, counties, colleges, special districts and other governmental entities, as well as private businesses engaged in public private partnerships or otherwise working with the government. Specific expertise includes open meetings, public information acts and election laws, as well as civil rights litigation and contract and business tort disputes involving public projects.

Experience in public service uniquely positions the team to efficiently resolve government-related disputes, from regulatory compliance issues to condemnation matters. With the support of more than 240 attorneys across a variety of practices, Gardere calls upon the diverse experience within the Firm, such as litigation, administrative and regulatory, condemnation/eminent domain and government affairs to develop effective strategies for clients operating in public forums.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
