One Law Firm On Both Sides of Controversy Over Alexandria Waterfront

Lawyers at McGuireWoods are on both sides of the controversy over the waterfront, the Alexandria Gazette Packet reports. They are defending Alexandria taxpayers in court while seeking approval from city officials on behalf of three separate developers at the same time. Legal experts say that's not a conflict of interest, but neighborhood residents say it leaves the impression that city officials are in bed with developers. Critics say the city should have considered hiring a firm that does not regularly appear before city leaders seeking zoning approvals.
