Public Entity Representation
Ivie McNeill Wyatt Purcell & Diggs has represented public entities including cities, counties, transportation authorities, law enforcement, public utilities, and school districts, as general counsel, special counsel and litigation counsel, since 1977. IMW has also had the distinction of being the first Black-owned law firm to represent a public entity since the entity’s inception.
Sensitive to the legal, political and everyday challenges that face public entities, we draw on our deep knowledge of the Tort Claims Act, Brown Act, Public Records Act, and other bodies of law to assist our clients. IMW has defended public entities through trials and appeals in both state and federal courts in employment, general liability, medical malpractice, civil rights, personal injury, regulatory compliance, and ADA, among others.
