From the moment you identify a district need we can help you select the procurement method that is right for you. We are available to help with statutory compliance, bidding and negotiation, disputes arising during bidding, contract drafting and analysis, contract administration, and business disputes. Our firm is also ready to help with all of your intergovernmental contracting needs.

Copyrights and trademarks are resources that school districts both produce and use. They can be a source of income for districts, a focus of the school community, and sometimes a matter of liability when districts use the copyrights and trademarks of others.

Our attorneys assist districts to assess the copyrights and trademarks they already own, license new works, and register district copyrights and trademarks. We can help you license district works to others for maximum return. Our firm also guides schools in the legal and ethical use of the works of others. We are sought-after trainers of school personnel on copyright and trademark matters. And we are the only firm with a school lawyer that has published more than eight books on copyright law for schools.
