Constitutional litigation is a cornerstone of Greene Espel’s practice. We represent individuals, private businesses, and government entities where their actions raise constitutional issues.

Our attorneys have experience litigating a multitude of issues in the government sector. We have defended land-use and zoning decisions made by cities, counties, and other public bodies. We have defended claims against government entities arising from land-use regulation, including “takings,” free speech and association, and substantive and procedural due-process claims.
