Education and Charter Schools

Growing out of extensive work for public schools, including school districts and universities, we have developed a deep understanding of charter and private schools and other innovations in education.  We understand that charter schools are not only part of the fastest-growing component of our public education system, but are also businesses that must achieve their operational and educational objectives in a cost-effective manner.

If you view charter or private schools as opportunities to improve public education, we are aligned with you. We want to help you make a positive difference. Our attorneys have a genuine passion for charter and private schools and their approach to education - flexible, tailored, dynamic, often inspiring. We actively participate in charter school legal advocacy organizations, both at the state and national levels, and we stay ahead of the curve by constantly monitoring the broader policy areas that impact charter school and other non-public school legislation. We are on top of emerging trends and work to positively influence policy and regulatory matters.
