Since the 1980's, our attorneys have represented governmental bodies, including the State of Illinois, counties, municipalities, townships, school districts, and park districts, as general counsel and in litigation.

As general counsel, our attorneys have dealt with government financial incentives, zoning requests, and agreements of all types, including the negotiations required to proceed with development plans. They have also negotiated employment contracts, real estate leasing contracts, and collective bargaining agreements. In litigation, they have represented municipal entities in matters involving civil rights, false arrest, malicious prosecution, defamation, employment, eminent domain, damage to premises, and personal injuries.

Querrey & Harrow offers a full complement of services to local government, including:

  • Municipal General Counsel
  • FOIA Counsel
  • General Litigation
  • Defense of Civil Rights
  • Premises Liability
  • Workers’ Compensation Claims
  • Development/Zoning
  • Employment Counseling
  • Employment Litigation
  • Employment/Labor
  • Planning & Development

We have developed relationships with municipalities through insurance coverage as well as through direct retention situations.

Our attorneys understand that municipalities are encountering similar budget issues and stresses associated with the state of the economy. We at Querrey & Harrow are working with Chicago area municipalities to help them reduce their legal budgets and ease those issues and stresses.
