We understand that running a college or school is like running a business. Colleges and schools retain Pierce Atwood because we find solutions to their legal challenges. We can handle anything that ends up on your desk – governance issues, employment matters, dealing with government regulators, real estate acquisitions and land use and environmental permitting, campus development and construction, protecting of your intellectual property, tax- exempt financing, fundraising and institutional development, immigration, and all manner of compliance issues – as well as issues specific to your business of education. We handle your legal needs in the same business-like way we handle the legal needs of our savviest business clients – with very lean staffing of our specialists in whatever area of law you encounter, and with a winning attitude and a proven track record that will get you where you need and want to go.
