On August 1, 2013 Stewart McDannold Stuart celebrated its 25th anniversary as a law firm. There have been many changes over the past 25 years. The law has changed and evolved. Members of this firm have changed, some retiring, others moving on to new adventures, new lawyers and support staff joining us. Our clients have seen many changes in the local government landscape as well, with broader local government powers, an increasingly complex demand for services at the local level, downloading of responsibilities from senior levels of government, difficult fiscal challenges, and looming environmental issues that most of us gave little thought to 25 years ago. In the face of those changes, however, we like to think that one thing has remained constant, and that is our dedication to providing the highest quality in legal services to our clients. We look forward to facing the challenges ahead with you, our clients and colleagues.
