Along with providing general counsel, we assist public and private entities with the financing and development of public projects, public sector disputes, and litigation. Our team is intimately familiar with all aspects of government law, from legislation and land use to labor law and related litigation.

We welcome inquiries from agencies and individuals in need of counsel and representation in administrative law matters.

Committed to Our Clients’ Interests in Administrative Law Matters

The seasoned attorneys at Brown, Bass & Jeter have years of experience representing both private clients and local governments, including city and county officials throughout Mississippi.

Like private employers, local governments frequently need help to remain in compliance with a multitude of employment-related civil rights laws and regulations, including the anti-discrimination provisions of Title VII, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act.

We also defend private clients and municipalities in lawsuits brought under the Fair Labor Standards Act, as well as in unemployment insurance and workers’ compensation claims.

In addition, we provide full-service representation for a variety of elected and appointed local governing bodies, including:

  • City councils/boards of aldermen
  • Code enforcement boards
  • Community development districts
  • Housing authorities
  • Personnel review boards
  • School districts

Representing these authorities effectively involves a complex mix of legal and practical considerations. The capable lawyers at Brown, Bass & Jeter have long-standing relationships with many local elected officials and work collaboratively to provide the highest caliber of legal guidance and advocacy while remaining cost-sensitive.

Our firm brings together veteran senior attorneys and litigators who skillfully manage the interplay of laws, policies, regulations,  and competing interests to promote and protect our clients’ positions. This operating model enables clients to rely on a single team of attorneys to devise creative solutions and move their issues to successful resolutions.

By making use of our services, municipalities and all forms of local government can protect their interests and resolve legal matters efficiently so that they can focus on other concerns.

We understand that governance is a complex and time-consuming duty. It’s our job to help local governments resolve matters quickly so they can continue to shape policy objectives and effect positive change rather than dealing with litigation, appeals, or legal technicalities.

Administrative and Regulatory LawAdministrative and Regulatory Law

The general public may need professional help in the area of administrative law when dealing with governmental agencies that provide some type of public benefit or aid, particularly when that benefit might be or has been terminated, limited, or denied.

Examples of the agencies with which the public may have dealings include:

  • The Social Security Administration (SSA)
  • The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)
  • Employment and labor boards
  • Unemployment insurance agencies
  • Workers’ compensation boards
  • Licensing agencies
  • Zoning boards

Issues involving licensing, certification, permits, and authorizations must be resolved satisfactorily to conduct business or professional practice. Our lawyers know how to handle all of these issues.

Helping clients work through necessary regulatory processes on the local, state, and federal levels is a central aim of our firm. We’ll partner with you to develop an appropriate strategy to overcome government barriers and help you reach a successful resolution.

Public Finance

Public finance transactions often arise from community and economic development projects. Our Jackson public finance attorneys have broad experience working with municipalities, developers, lenders, and other community figures on an array of transactions involving public finance structures and development incentives, including state and federal tax credits.

Our clients rely on our proven ability to resolve complex public finance legal issues, which paves the way for the development, financing, and implementation of significant projects. Our foremost goal is to provide the most dynamic and reliable legal services possible while remaining accessible to individuals and entities across all industries and sectors.


Anytime someone faces denial, loss, or limitation of their professional license or registration, they should seek the aid of an attorney with licensing law experience. State licensing entities wield substantial power over licensees. As such, having a lawyer who understands the relevant regulations is critical to avoiding unnecessary or overly harsh consequences.

The attorneys at Brown, Bass & Jeter possess a thorough understanding of licensing laws and can help professionals take the necessary steps to preserve their credentials. We’ll represent your interests forcefully at each stage of the administrative process, including administrative hearings, settlement conferences, and administrative appeals.
