Our corporate services to schools include commercial and government contracts, mergers and acquisitions, promotions, data security, athletic department contracts, lending and aviation. We often are asked for counsel in finance when universities need assistance in expanding their endowments, raising funds for projects, issuing bonds to fund expansion and applying for grants to underwrite research projects. Increasingly, institutions see themselves as hot beds for research and technology by providing incubator space for start-ups. We assist schools in setting up public-private partnerships as platforms to encourage and market such research.
