The Finance and Government Operations Team provides essential legal advice to the Board of Supervisors, the County Executive, the Assessor, the Clerk of the Board, Facilities and Fleet Department, Finance Agency, County Library, Procurement Department, and Registrar of Voters to fulfill the public service mission of the County. Finance and Government Operations Team attorneys research and analyze many areas of law, craft ordinances and policies, negotiate contracts, comment on legislation, and help solve challenging problems for the County departments and officials they advise. They also participate in highly significant litigation related to property taxation and election-related matters, and provide advice on programs of significant importance to the County’s Board of Supervisors and the broader community.
The Team’s practice is grounded in honing expertise in public law, including the Brown Act, the Public Records Act, and the Political Reform Act. Attorneys also practice in specialized areas including public contracting, finance, property taxation, ethics and conflicts of interest.
