As regional community functions are being reviewed today, the role of local public governments and the expectations of citizens toward these entities have expanded. Hence, there are strong needs for compliance by local governments, and residents are becoming more strongly aware of the issue.
Under the current situation, local governments are confronted with countless legal issues that vary widely. It is not uncommon for these problems to lead to lawsuits. As a result of the revision of the Administrative Case Litigation Act in 2004, legal remedy boundaries have widened and recent court rulings show that courts generally tend to be more rigid against local governments.
Our firm has always received numerous requests for legal counseling and dispute settlement from local governments and agencies. We will continue to work for the proper management of these agencies and for sound relationships with residents, building on past experience.
