Special Districts

Special Districts

Our attorneys have served as general counsel to scores of Colorado’s special districts and municipalities, including cities, fire protection districts, water and sanitation districts, metropolitan districts, business improvement districts, intergovernmental authorities, and others for over 45 years. They provide services regarding the formation and ongoing representation of these entities in the areas of municipal law, election law, TABOR issues, finance, water law, environmental law, litigation, and other related areas. In addition, our firm serves as bond counsel to numerous political subdivisions throughout the state.

As counsel to special districts, our firm has been involved in developments ranging from approximately 5 acres to developments in excess of 25,000 acres.  Our bond attorneys have been responsible for hundreds of securities transactions connected with the formation and/or financing of counties, municipalities, special districts, and other political subdivisions. In these transactions, the firm has represented issuers, underwriters, developers, letter of credit providers, investors, and others.

Our representation of special districts also includes litigation of matters such as annexations, elections, land use appeals, tax protests, condemnation, utility rates, employment issues, construction and contract disputes, licensing, environmental insurance, and public financing disputes.

Special districts and municipalities require special expertise. Let us put our knowledge and experience to work for you.
