Ralph M. Brown Act
We routinely advise clients regarding issues relating to open meetings, often being called upon after hours and “on the fly” to provide immediate and urgent Brown Act direction.
We have advised on complex questions and have successfully litigated several cases involving the Brown Act. Providing training for local officials and city staff regarding the this and other California laws that affect public agencies is a regular aspect of our firm’s engagements. Although advising on the Brown Act may seem like a basic function of a public law attorney, we know the importance of this law, its complexity and its legal and public policy concerns, ensuring that we are always aware of emerging issues that have Brown Act implications.
