Our interdisciplinary industry team has many years of experience serving education providers and handling their complex legal challenges. We understand that educators and administrators must manage and meet the myriad of regulatory requirements governing everything from student privacy to employee compensation. On the other hand, our clients must also respond to the everyday, operational issues they face as businesses – whether selling or purchasing property, avoiding or managing liability, collecting debts, or responding to personnel concerns.

Our Clients

Our clients rely on us to handle regulatory compliance concerns, complex fiscal and financial matters, and difficult disputes. We counsel and represent an array of players throughout the industry, including:

  • Public and private primary, secondary and post-secondary facilities;
  • For-profit education providers;
  • Specialty and trade schools;
  • Religious institutions; and
  • Online educational content providers.

Our Value

Our members stay current on emerging issues. We are active, for example, with the National Association of College and University Attorneys (NACUA) and frequently participate in NACUA programs and seminars.

Whether keeping current with education legislation, drafting business contracts, or representing our clients in the courtroom, our team harnesses the skills and experience of a top, full-service firm.
