Two longtime attorneys who represent a lengthy list of local suburbs are launching a new firm, bringing their municipal clients with them to their new office.

Last month, Steven Elrod and Peter Friedman announced they were creating Elrod Friedman LLC, a new firm promising to focus on government law, land use, real estate development, zoning and entitlements. That had been their area of concentration at the Chicago office of the national law firm Holland & Knight.

At their new legal home, Elrod Friedman will continue representing Arlington Heights, Glencoe, Highland Park, Kenilworth, Lake Bluff, Lincolnwood, Northbrook, Deerfield, Winnetka and the Park District of Oak Park, among other local governments.
