Effecting Change: The Role of the Public Lawyer
Piedmont League of Women Voters is honored to welcome Louise Renne, lawyer, former Supervisor and one-time City Attorney for the City and County of San Francisco, California. A California Deputy Attorney General for 11 years, she served in the environmental and criminal divisions, and argued on behalf of the state before the California Supreme Court and the United States Supreme Court.
Ms. Renne heads the Renne Public Law Group which advises and advocates for public agencies, nonprofits, individuals, and private entities in need of effective and creative legal solutions. She leads the firm’s public litigation practice. Currently, she is working on cases involving opioid abuse and e-cigarette dangers for youth.
Louise Renne is known for transforming the traditionally defense-oriented practice of municipal law by creating an affirmative litigation program that won significant victories for cities and counties in California. As a nationally recognized and respected leader in municipal law, she often testifies before federal, state, and other governmental bodies. She is also frequently requested to conduct impartial investigations for local public agencies in high-profile cases.
