Our attorneys counsel educational institutions on governance matters, including updating bylaws, ensuring compliance with state and federal non-profit regulations and filings, and establishing gift acceptance, conflict of interest, document retention, and whistleblower policies.

Our attorneys have served as board chairs and trustees of independent schools and other non-profit organizations and, as a result, have keen insight into the issues and oversight responsibilities of trustees of independent schools. In addition, our attorneys guide schools through the search and hiring process for heads of school and other senior administrators.
