A&K handles complex and high visibility matters for a range of state and regional authorities. This work includes major real estate transactions, complex procurement matters and major land use and environmental issues.

  • We represent the Massachusetts Gaming Commission, the authority overseeing the development of a brand-new gaming industry in Massachusetts. To translate the Commission from broad legislative concept to reality, we helped create regulations on everything from governance to horse racing. More┬árecently, we cross-examined numerous casino applicants on behalf of its Investigations and Enforcement Bureau.
  • We helped MassDevelopment acquire portions of a state school from Massachusetts in a joint venture with the Taunton Development Corporation. To make the deal, we advised MassDevelopment on special legislation authorizing the purchase, and negotiated multiple leases and a land disposition agreement with various Massachusetts departments.
  • We work on various projects for the MBTA and MassDOT, including procurement of vehicles and locomotives, as well as construction matters.
