creating great learning environments

Lerch Early helps educational organizations throughout Maryland, DC, and Virginia provide great places to learn and work. We serve preschools, K-12 private schools, and public and private colleges and universities.

Heads of independent schools and board members turn to Lerch Early for general counsel on running their schools effectively, from employee matters, to facilities, to operations. We counsel school leaders on governing effectively, creating a productive workforce, getting the most from their campuses, and maintaining strong operations. Lerch Early’s attorneys also give practical advice on balancing the needs of students, parents, and teachers.

We provide counsel to private schools and institutions of higher learning on employment policies, risk avoidance, contracts and tax issues, litigation, and dispute resolution, as well as facility leasing, expansion, and renovation. Lerch Early also is active in organizations like AISGW and AIMS, including monitoring legislation that may impact schools.
