Municipal Law

Rudman Winchell takes pride in working closely with our clients to understand and efficiently handle a range of legal issues related to Municipal Law.  We work collaboratively to provide legal services to dozens of Maine communities, offering expertise in the representation of towns, cities, counties and quasi-municipal districts.  We provide tailored advice to address the specific needs and questions of each of our municipal clients, understanding that each community has unique needs. 

We also assist municipalities with financial matters including tax anticipation notes and bond anticipation notes. 

In addition to our municipal clients, the Rudman Winchell Municipal attorneys represent private and business clients, advocating for their interests before federal, state and local government entities.   We provide assistance with the land use and permitting process from start to finish, as well as assisting with the interpretation of state and local laws, ordinances and regulations. 

Our attorneys are experienced with the administrative process and are knowledgeable regarding next steps for clients seeking permits and approvals, including pursuit of an appeal.

We work closely with municipal staff, consultants, and developers to provide comprehensive and cost-effective representation to our clients.   Whether a client presents a question regarding the interpretation and applicability of a local zoning ordinance, requires our team to pursue a zone change, or counsel to work with through the administrative process, our municipal attorneys are experienced and able to assist our clients in this regard, as well as a variety of other municipal legal concerns. 

Rudman Winchell brings decades of experience in a variety of matters including litigation, employment and labor law, administrative law, real estate law, business and corporate law, and insurance law.  We bring this expertise together to provide our clients with quality legal representation. 

We are continuously excited about the work we do and take pride in working in the communities where we live and work. 

Rudman Winchell’s affiliate, Starboard Leadership Consulting, can provide expert guidance for municipalities in the areas of governance and strategic planning.
