Educational Institutions and Youth-Serving Organizations


Colleges and universities are frequent targets of lawsuits arising from a wide variety of disputes, from highly charged First Amendment controversies to basic controversies which naturally arise while doing the “business” of higher education. Our team of litigators have extensive experience in virtually every area of the law. We focus on achieving favorable resolutions through negotiations and pre-trial motions for summary judgment or alternative dispute resolution, but when matters must go to the courtroom our team has the experience gleaned from taking hundreds of cases to verdict. Many of our litigators spent years as trial attorneys at Am Law 100 firms, and they now exercise those skills at our firm, where they can offer clients a value model that is sensitive to costs.

Likewise, Taylor English’s Youth-Serving Organizations group is dedicated to protecting and enhancing our clients’ passion for service. Our attorneys use their industry experience to help safeguard each client’s ability to pursue its mission and in turn serve its own clients.

We regularly advise day care centers, camps, mentoring organizations, non-profits, schools and social welfare organizations that work with young people.

We understand that our clients face legal issues unique to their mission. Our attorneys frequently work with organizations to meet their social and financial goals by providing legal counsel on the following matters:

  • Compliance with state laws and licensing standards,
  • Defense of personal injury and abuse claims,
  • Contract disputes, defamation claims and other litigation.
