In addition, in the event that facility-siting matters must be resolved in state and federal courts, Allen Matkins draws on its broad knowledge of land use litigation to assist clients in obtaining favorable resolutions. We regularly advise clients on Shot-Clock matters and Section 6409 Wireless Facilities Deployment issues.
