GrayRobinson has long provided its clients with effective representation before all levels of Florida government including city, county, special district, state and the U.S. Congress. When there was a dispute as to whether Bush or Gore won the election in Florida, GrayRobinson was asked to play a major role in representing the Republican Party. When Palm Bay, Port St. Lucie and North Port decided to purchase major utilities, our firm was there representing those municipalities. When litigation was brought to no longer allow cars on the beaches of Daytona, our firm was hired to represent the county.
Over the years, we have served as general counsel and/or special counsel to numerous cities, counties, and public agencies. We have also represented hundreds of clients before governmental entities relating to everything from bidder's protests to DRIs. We have successfully lobbied at all levels of government.
Our firm serves as counsel to the Florida House of Representatives with regards to reapportionment issues and the Florida Citrus Commission. Our attorneys counsel the Department of Management Services on a variety of employee benefits issues and have also represented the state's largest and oldest private children's services agency in negotiating and contracting with the state in the current privatization of child protection services.
GrayRobinson is very involved in the political process and our team understands how state and local government really works.
Representation Before Local Government
The experience and reputation gained during the firm's years of public service enable it to provide quality legal services to the private sector in the areas of public finance, utilities, zoning, procurement, environmental and land use law. In addition, members of our public law team have served on the staff of governmental agencies for both state and local governments, providing our clients with a unique perspective and knowledge of local government. The public law group has been fulfilling the legal needs of large-scale developers, contractors, and utilities throughout Florida.
