Burns & Levinson has been successfully representing charter schools and related tax-exempt foundations for over 15 years. By combing the legal experience and industry knowledge available across our full-range of service areas, Burns & Levinson attorneys have the resources and experience to assist charter schools in navigating through a continually-changing and complex legal and regulatory landscape. Whether related to entity formation, board and governance matters, organization of 501(c)(3) supporting foundations, regulatory and compliance concerns, facility development and real estate, or labor and employment issues, we have the depth and breadth of legal experience to provide effective legal counsel. Most importantly, we understand the nuances associated with these special institutions and are able to effectively guide schools through legal issues not faced by traditional public or private k-12 schools.
Our attorneys work directly with senior management, trustee boards, and administrators to provide pragmatic legal advice and effective representation in a wide variety of matters. In addition to representing charter schools and related tax-exempt foundations, many of our attorneys have held board positions with schools, colleges, and other educational organizations. Our attorneys are active and engaged leaders serving as trustees, school committee members, leaders in alumni organizations and in other similar capacities.
