Oakley Growth Allows It to Bring Legal Services In-House
Oakland, CA – Meyers Nave has announced that it will no longer represent the City of Oakley as contract City Attorney once the City Council has retained its first in-house city attorney.
Meyers Nave has served as City Attorney of Oakley since its incorporation in 1999, helping the city with the legal issues associated with its growth. Sky Woodruff, a principal with the Oakland-based law firm, will continue to represent the City of Oakley as City Attorney until an in-house counsel is established. “Meyers Nave looks forward to continuing to work with the City of Oakley by providing special legal services in the future,” stated Woodruff, who has served as City Attorney since September 1, 2005. Woodruff succeeded his partner, Elizabeth Silver, a founding principal of Meyers Nave who previously served as Oakley’s city attorney. “We are excited that Oakley has grown so quickly and is now able to retain an in-house city attorney. It is gratifying to us to have been able to assist the city in its early years so the city council can fulfill its longtime goal of retaining an in-house city attorney,” said Ms. Silver.
The City of Oakley is located in eastern Contra Costa County and is one of the state’s newest cities. City Councilmember Pat Anderson, who also served as Oakley’s first mayor stated, “We have been fortunate to have contracted with such a reputable firm during our formative years. As we transition to an in-house City Attorney, we do so knowing that Meyers Nave has and always will be available to guide us in a time of need with exceptional, professional, and personalized service”.
