Ethics and Compliance Programs

Overview

Foremost to any public agency is reducing its risk. We are committed to strengthening clients’ ethics and compliance programs.

Our attorneys counsel clients on all types of ethical issues, such as the Ralph M. Brown Act, Public Records Act, Section 1090 and the Political Reform Act.

Drawing on our long history representing a diverse range of public entities in California, we know what works for clients on a case-by-case basis. We have achieved many successes in this area, helping to implement new personnel practices and revise employee training so that our clients ultimately have a solid foundation in place to deter future workplace wrongdoings—including complaints of harassment and retaliation.
