Mergers, Acquisitions and Consolidations

Stevens & Lee represents colleges, universities and 501(c)(3) entities in a wide range of corporate matters. We understand the shared governance structure of colleges and universities and are skilled at assisting these entities in maintaining and navigating the legal boundaries among administrators, faculty and trustees.

Usually chosen by higher education clients for our strong financial background and familiarity with debt and equity financing sources, our lawyers are responsible for some very large, nationally prominent transactions. For example, our lawyers represented The Dickinson School of Law, one of the oldest private law schools in the country, in its merger with The Pennsylvania State University as well as the Pennsylvania College of Podiatric Medicine in its merger with Temple University.
