Municipal Law

Smith Sovik represents numerous municipalities as general counsel and has broad experience in advising town boards, planning boards and zoning boards. We regularly defend the State of New York, counties, towns, cities, villages and school districts in litigation across Upstate and Central New York.

Smith Sovik is appropriately aggressive in an industry that requires something more than just a run of the mill attitude. More particularly, I was most impressed with your aggressive negotiation style at mediation and then your ability to appropriately modify your approach for the jury during the Paduana trial. In addition, you are well versed in NY Labor Law which is a real plus given the complexity and high damage exposure of construction claims.
