We have extensive experience representing institutions of higher learning in court actions ranging from single-plaintiff lawsuits to complex, multi-party litigation instigated by classes of employees, students, or government agencies.

Our experience includes employment litigation and charges brought by faculty, staff, and students relating to non-reappointment, tenure denial, discipline, dismissal for cause, harassment, and breach of contract. We have particular experience representing institutions of higher learning, and individual administrators acting on behalf of those institutions, in multi-party actions involving tenure denial or dismissal, termination consequent to program closure, alleged discrimination, non-compete agreements, the False Claims Act, the FLSA, defamation, privacy and property issues, whistleblower statutes, and trade secrets. We also represent individual senior administrators, faculty members, or committee members who are personally sued because of their service during internal proceedings or because of other work performed on behalf of the institution.
