Our corporate team has extensive experience representing higher educational institutions and research parks, including on commercial and government contracts, mergers and acquisitions, promotions, corporate structuring, data security, athletic department contracts, lending and aviation. We also counsel universities on expanding their endowments, raising funds for projects, issuing bonds to fund expansion and applying for grants to underwrite research projects. As educational institutions are hot beds for research and technology, fostering the need for research parks and for incubator space for start-ups, we assist schools in setting up public-private partnerships as platforms to encourage and market such research.
