Anderson, Coe & King has decades of experience representing private and public educational institutions, administrators, teachers, and boards of education. Our clients include K-12 public and private schools, charter schools, colleges and universities, in Maryland and the District of Columbia. For nearly 30 years, we have served as counsel to the Maryland Association of Boards of Education Group Insurance Pool. With attorneys who bring experience in a wide range of legal disciplines and issues that affect today’s education sector, we are uniquely positioned to offer both litigation and non-litigation-related counsel.
We provide a comprehensive range of general counsel services to educational institutions. Our capabilities in this area include:
- Title IX
- Civil rights
- Office of Civil Rights investigations
- Regulatory compliance
- Insurance matters
- Risk management
- Policy and procedures review
- Student rights and discipline
We believe in resolving disputes through negotiation when possible. When an out-of-court resolution cannot be achieved, however, we are committed to providing a creative and vigorous defense. We routinely defend educators and educational institutions against allegations of sexual misconduct, inadequate supervision of students, failure to discipline, and age, race, and sex discrimination. We have defended educational institutions in litigation involving claims of bullying, campus shootings, injuries occurring during athletic competitions, and in premises liability and motor tort cases. We have also defended educators and educational institutions on claims made by disgruntled former employees, board members, and administrators.
