Challenges to Government Conduct
In some instances, your adversary is not a business competitor or other private entity, but the government itself. These are often challenging cases, as the government has many immunities, exemptions and other unfair advantages in its favor. Moreover, unfortunately, many courts are inclined to favor the government in legal disputes. Part of the reason for that is that many litigants challenge state and local government entities every day, but do so with poor advocacy that doesn’t effectively present their case.
We have experience challenging government entities and, frankly, enjoy doing it. Businesses deserve justice and sometimes they have to fight for it. We are in your corner. We also commonly file amicus briefs supporting such challenges, including, for examples, issues involving property rights, individual rights, economic liberty, free speech, and antitrust.
We have particular expertise in challenging state and local government entities under the antitrust laws. Indeed, Bona Law is working hard to develop the law in this area through both litigation and education (by writing articles and public speaking).
Bona Law is also willing and able to bring constitutional challenges, no matter how difficult, to protect the rights of individuals and businesses. David Codell, for example, has led groundbreaking constitutional litigation, has served as a constitutional litigation director, and practiced constitutional law with the legendary Professor Laurence Tribe of Harvard Law School.
Bona Law founder, Jarod Bona, was inspired by his clerkship during Harvard Law School with a public-interest law firm called The Institute for Justice. Based upon this experience and others, he has made it a firm mission to protect individuals and businesses from government encroachments on freedom.
