Special District Law

Denver Park and Recreation District Lawyers

As entities providing important services to communities, special-purpose districts or special district governments have particular legal concerns. Many of these unique public entities are subject to more complicated financing and auditing laws. Special districts have particular processes for purchasing services and goods, and some types of special districts can be attractive targets for litigation. While the principles of business and employment law apply to special districts, their unique features call for experienced legal counsel in managing risk and ensuring success.
