Representation of individuals and business entities before local, state, and federal administrative agencies.
Examples of our representation in this practice area include:
• In a nationally recognized case, Sprague & Sprague successfully challenged the designation of a theater interior as historic and established limitations on the criteria to be considered by a municipal historical commission in its historic designations.
• In another nationally recognized case, brought after a municipality effected a “taking” of a privately owned work of art by declaring it historic, we established the right of the property owner to challenge the historic designation in the courts.
• We represented clients opposed to a large downtown commercial project proposed by a public agency. Our successful representation of the project opponents before a local agency and Pennsylvania state courts led to the agency’s abandonment of the project.
