Governmental Representation

The term "government" can cover a pretty broad range of matters. Grower Ketcham's attorneys have a diverse wealth of knowledge and expertise in the intricacies of governmental law.

Over the past 25 years, we have advised, counseled and litigated for municipalities, school boards, law enforcement agencies and other government entities. This practice area is among the broadest in the firm. As several of our attorneys possess criminal law and public defender backgrounds, our team has valuable insight into claims which include governmental liability and law enforcement practices.

Under this practice umbrella, we represent governmental agencies and employees in a variety of matters ranging from administrative hearings to personal injury defense, police practices, premises liability defense, civil rights and all types of administrative and tort claims. Our clients include municipal and governmental liability insurers, risk management funds and self-insured organizations. We also represent governmental bodies in medical and healthcare issues arising out of clinics, correctional facilities, fire rescue and other governmental institutions.
