Government Ethics Law

Ethics violations may result in significant reputational damage, as well as legal liability.  At Wilentz, we advise municipalities, county agencies, school boards, governmental officials, and parties doing business with government entities on ethics issues. We also help our clients devise processes to promote compliance with state and local government ethics laws, such as the New Jersey Conflicts of Interest Law, Local Government Ethics Law and School Ethics Act. We have also obtained favorable advisory ethics opinions, and we often assist in the filing of annual reporting and disclosure statements required by the ethics laws.
