The origins of Pearson go back as far as 1724 when Thomas Longman founded Longman. Pearson was actually founded in 1844 by Samuel Pearson as S. Pearson and Son, a small building firm in Yorkshire in the North of England.

In the intervening years, Pearson has done many different things. Today, they are focused solely on education but with the same imagination for harnessing new technologies, bravery of vision, and decency to the people and cultures Samuel Pearson worked. Those values still underpin everything Pearson does all these years later.

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.
