Ward Greenberg attorneys represent a host of educational institutions in connection with an array of higher education matters, including tenure review, tenure denial, and tenure revocation; faculty and employee misconduct; Title IX sexual misconduct investigations and litigation; allegations of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation; investigations into claims of academic and scientific misconduct; disability accommodations; governmental and agency investigations; student discipline and misconduct; program modifications and closures; governance issues; and matters involving serious physical injury and death.

For institutions struggling with challenging employee, faculty, student, or family matters, or facing serious governmental inquiries—where prompt, deft, and capable assistance of counsel is a must—Ward Greenberg has the depth of experience to quickly comprehend and address the problems while restoring equilibrium, calming administration’s concerns, furthering institutional objectives, and minimizing the negative fallout that can occur in these difficult circumstances. Ward Greenberg balances pragmatic action with composure, confidence, and a focus on collaboration and efficiency, with the aim of delivering real value, every time, to the institutions we work with. That is why Ward Greenberg is the firm of choice for numerous colleges, universities, academic medical centers, and professional schools located throughout New York State, and beyond.

Ward Greenberg lawyers present frequently to higher education audiences at the National Association of College and University Attorneys, the Council of Independent Colleges, at client institutions, and at regional higher education groups. For more than 20 years, Ward Greenberg lawyers have been designated by United Educators as preferred counsel, and one of our partners was designated by United Educators as the inaugural recipient of its Distinguished Counsel award.
