Joan Cassman Named Top 25 Municipal Lawyer

December 9, 2011 (SAN FRANCISCO, CA) — Hanson Bridgett is pleased to announce that Joan Cassman, chair of the firm's public agency, municipal and government sections, has been named as one of the Top 25 Municipal Lawyers of California by the Daily Journal.

"I am delighted to have been honored along with such esteemed legal colleagues in the municipal industry," said Ms. Cassman. "This comes at a challenging time for government at all levels, and particularly cities, that must realign the expected services they offer  with their limited available resources. I am glad the Daily Journal has given attention to this matter."

For the very first time the Daily Journal has assembled a list of the top municipal lawyers in California who are advocating for the rights and the means of survival for the agencies that make up our public sector.   The work of these municipal lawyers brings focus to the significant roles that these agencies play in society. Working in partnership with the dedicated public employees they serve, municipal lawyers have been forced to find innovative solutions to the many challenges facing  cities, counties and special districts. In assembling the list, the Daily Journal sought to honor these lawyers whose efforts benefit citizens at large by improving the functionality of government and developing positive trends in municipal law that will influence the practice for years to come.

Hanson Bridgett is a law firm with more than 150 attorneys in offices in San Francisco, Sacramento, the North Bay, Silicon Valley and the East Bay. Serving clients since 1958, we are well known in Northern California and have earned a national reputation in many of our practice areas.

Our diverse client list includes large national and global companies as well as many governmental entities, regional businesses and individuals. While we keep true to our California roots, our work increasingly takes us across state and national borders.
