We understand that institutions of higher learning must balance complex and competing obligations to students, parents, faculty, employees, donors, lawmakers, regulators, and educational standards. Accordingly, we deliver tailored advice that takes into account not just legal issues, but also the business, technological, financial and reputational issues organizations must consider when dealing with these obligations.

As a full-service law firm, our attorneys have experience in all areas of the law that affect higher education and research parks. The depth of our industry-specific experience and the breadth of our complimentary practice groups at Taylor English allows us to support our higher education clients in every area of their operations —from day-to-day decision-making to the most complex opportunities and challenges. Our services include:

  • Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation
  • Employment and Labor Relations
  • Real Estate
  • Corporate
  • Intellectual Property
  • Litigation and Dispute Resolution
  • Title IX Compliance Work
  • Tax
  • Regulatory and Compliance
  • Environmental and Energy

Our team’s clients include public and private institutions of all sizes, including both non-profit and for-profit entities. We also represent school presidents, boards of trustees, boards of regents, accreditation agencies, supporting and cooperative organizations, foundations, service providers and other groups serving academia. Our attorneys’ backgrounds are as diverse as our clients and include former general counsel and in-house counsel, current and former college and law school professors, and educational institution board members.
