Legal Guidance and Representation for Government Entities

Our lawyers provide in services and representation for cities, villages, municipalities and other units of local government on large waterworks and other infrastructure funding projects. Our extensive experience researching specific statutes governing the municipalities themselves gives us the depth of knowledge necessary to help projects to successful completion. Infrastructure projects are complex and involve many moving parts; there are numerous governing laws, ordinances and regulatory codes, many of which are difficult to interpret. As your representative or assisting general counsel, we can assist with all legal matters related to such projects; including but not limited to issues involving drinking water, sewerage treatment and storm water, drafting ordinances, tax levies and inter-governmental agreements, state and local public notice requirements, bond issuances, legal opinions, statutory interpretations, obtaining low-interest infrastructure funding, judicial and administrative proceedings involving government regulatory agencies.

We understand, however, that disputes can arise under even the best of circumstances.

Advanced Tax and Estate Planning to Minimize Tax Liability

One of the biggest killers of family businesses is the estate tax. When you pass on, non-exempt assets can be taxed at a combined (federal and Illinois state) tax rate of over 50 percent. Fortunately, there are several advanced strategies that can be employed to minimize the effects of the estate tax and ensure the bulk of your hard-earned assets end up in the hands of your heirs rather than the government. We understand that each family has a unique set of dynamics, and there is no one-size-fits-all estate planning solution. We take the time to analyze your circumstances thoroughly and develop the most practical estate plan to accomplish your objectives effectively. We also provide sophisticated advice in complex income, sales and uses taxes on the Federal and State level.
