Public Entities


Since our founding in 1932, Walter | Haverfield has been providing full-service legal counsel to government bodies: municipalities, townships, school boards, and regional taxing agencies. Selected areas of expertise include: drafting legislation, charters, and government regulations, zoning and land use, labor relations and collective bargaining, telecommunications right-of-way matters, administrative law and procedures, equal employment practices, environmental, real estate, and construction law, self-insurance pools, eminent domain, public funding, tax abatements, and economic development.

In addition, many Public Law Group members are law directors, assistant law directors, and prosecutors in northeast Ohio communities. We are particularly skilled in the courtroom and have defended public officials and civil rights actions, and won precedent-setting cases in state and federal court.
