Dependable Counsel on Michigan Municipal Law Issues

With the growing complexity of regulatory restrictions on businesses in all industries, many Southeast Michigan companies have come to rely on Adkison, Need, Allen, & Rentrop for advice and representation on licensing, permitting and enforcement matters. Our attorneys serve as counsel for municipalities throughout the area, and we can apply our municipal law experience to your advantage.

Contact a lawyer at our Bloomfield Hills office if you or your business needs help with a problem with local regulations, permit applications or alleged violations. Our experience with liquor licenses, construction projects and special events permits can help you resolve your issue while avoiding mistakes and unnecessary expense.

Municipal law offers opportunities as well as headaches for businesses

As well as helping our clients solve regulatory and enforcement problems, we can also help them take advantage of economic development and financing. We monitor the tax breaks and economic incentives that are periodically enacted to stimulate investment and help our clients make them work within established business plans.

Examples of our municipal law work include:

  • Land use and zoning issues
  • Property tax appeals
  • Utility and infrastructure development
  • Special events permits
  • Liquor licensing applications, compliance and enforcement matters
  • Special assessments
  • Environmental restrictions
  • Defense of zoning violations in circuit or district court
  • Zoning Board of Appeals and Planning Commision approvals

Our attorneys serve several municipalities and public authorities in Oakland County as general counsel. They can also step in when your usual attorney has a conflict of interest, or to help private sector clients negotiate the details of local regulations, restrictions and enforcement.
