Most recently our principals Luke Legere and Gregor McGregor addressed the MMLA membership on September 15 at the Red Jacket Resort in West Yarmouth, MA as part of the 2016 meeting. You can watch our PowerPoint in its entirety.

Our PowerPoint covers climate change, DEP regulatory reforms, energy law, hazardous materials, parklands and Article 97, pollution insurance, regulatory takings cases, tidelands and Chapter 91, underground tanks, 40B affordable housing, stormwater rules, and wetlands law and procedures.

Other panels at the three day MMLA meeting discussed federal and state constitutional law court cases, the MA marijuana referendum question (since enacted), land use and zoning, education law cases, and the toughened MA public records law (effective January 1, 2017).

Our firm works for a variety of business, landowner, developer, government. non-profit, and citizen clients who need to understand, implement or comply with municipal laws. They hire us for a range of legal services on permits and licenses, enforcement and defense, interpretations and rulings, changes to bylaws and ordinances, and of course litigation in state and federal courts.

The MMLA (formerly the City Solicitors & Town Counsel Association) is the municipal law bar association for MA. Since 1946 it has served cities and towns with legal advice, publications, and educational events. The members are public officials and attorneys whose practices include legal services to cities and towns or devote much of their work to advancing municipal law.

On March 15, 2017, Mr. McGregor and Mr. Legere will join the faculty of the Annual Conference on Municipal Law put on by Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education, Inc. (MCLE). There they will present their Update on Environmental Law for the audience.
