Each month, here at Mandell on Safety and Security, we share information about three service or product providers. This bonus "consumer report" feature reflects our awareness of the prospective partners and their proven track record of success with schools within their area of specialization. The companies or organizations included are ones that we have discovered through our research or experience as school professionals. None of these organizations have paid to be part of this bonus feature.
Our firm is perhaps best known for providing comprehensive legal services to public schools, as well as to charter and private schools and colleges. We understand that institutions, nonprofits, and businesses face external risks on many fronts. Each also has the challenge of efficiently carrying out its functions and purposes. The lawyers in our firm take pride in helping clients realize their own goals in an increasingly complex legal environment. Our clients are truly clients of the entire firm, ensuring that the right team is always at your service. Each client benefits from the availability of our deep reserve of expertise and experience across many fields of law but without the compartmentalization of a large, sprawling firm.
The legal assistance and advice we provide to schools pertain to, but are not limited to, the following practice areas: board/superintendent relations, matters regarding student and employee handbooks, employment agreements and student enrollment contracts, as well as board policies. We also advise administrators regarding the many employment and student matters that arise on a daily basis, including attendance, medical issues, athletic eligibility, and special educational needs.

SCHOOL EMPLOYMENT LAWYERS
SPOTLIGHT TOPIC - STUDENT TRAVEL
The core mission of the Fisher Phillips Education Practice Group is to help administrators of K-12 educational institutions understand and meet your legal obligations to faculty, staff, and students under state and federal law. We recognize that each decision made in the school environment – from application and admission to termination and expulsion – affects your relationship with students, parents, faculty, and staff. We help you understand your rights and responsibilities associated with each decision, and assist in achieving the best possible results at every step.
Sometimes employers must send a powerful message, and the right messenger can make all the difference. Fisher Phillips has the experience and credibility to make your message clear. That’s why some of the savviest employers come to us to handle their toughest negotiations. Visit https://www.fisherphillips.com/ to learn more.
