Strategic Alliance Partners

thompson-coburn-llp

Thompson Coburn deeply appreciates that institutions of higher education are complex, multi-layered organizations that contend with an array of legal and compliance challenges. We also understand that postsecondary institutions vary greatly by mission, organization, and structure. Such challenges — and the corresponding solutions — are informed by each institution’s particular set of circumstances, including fiscal resources, labor constraints, and vulnerability to changing regulatory and political agendas.

To manage these myriad challenges effectively, postsecondary institutions of all shapes and sizes, as well as the companies that serve them, require legal counsel that can swiftly and comprehensively respond to their needs. This is especially true in the present environment, where institutions face close scrutiny from local, state, and federal entities, accreditors and, increasingly, the general public.
