Elections & Government Law
Stoll Berne’s lawyers have decades of experience providing advice and counsel to political campaigns, candidates, and individuals involved in state and local political or governmental processes.
We advise proponents and opponents statewide and local ballot measures through all stages in the process, including drafting measures, ballot title and other legal challenges, signature collection, and signature verification. We also advise campaigns and candidates on campaign finance, ethics, and other legal matters. We have overseen recounts of contested candidate and measure races, and have successfully challenged and defended in court measures approved by voters. We also represent individuals in state and local regulatory compliance matters, including administrative and disciplinary hearings.
We are prepared to assist clients through the challenges inherent in a political campaign and in addressing issues raised by state or local governmental regulatory bodies.
