About Our Education Practice

Our Education Practice Group provides representation for the myriad legal issues that educational institutions and other education stakeholders face on a daily basis. The lawyers in our Education Practice Group serve as compliance, transactional, and litigation counsel to a variety of clients, including:

  • K-12 and postsecondary institutions throughout Florida and Alabama
  • Foundations and organizations that support education
  • Vendors providing educational services and products

In serving as special or general counsel to many of our education clients, our lawyers routinely handle matters common to such bodies. This includes advising on regulatory audits and appeals, drafting and implementing policies that protect the institutions’ interests and best serve their students and employees, providing counsel on human resources and employment law matters,  drafting and negotiating contracts, navigating compliance with open government and state ethics laws, overseeing competitive bidding procurement procedures, advising on taxation and public finance, and resolving and litigating disputes when they arise.

The lawyers in our Education Practice Group also work on public financings when our clients are ready for growth. With experience acting as bond counsel, borrower’s counsel, disclosure counsel, underwriter’s counsel, and lender’s counsel, our lawyers are ready and able to assist in any capacity needed.
