Highly regarded as a trusted adviser and advocate for nonprofit and religious organizations, Stradley Ronon addresses the challenges and removes the obstacles that prevent nonprofits from achieving their missions. We represent tax-exempt organizations of all stripes – religious and secular colleges and universities, charter schools and other educational institutions, health care and social services agencies, and others serving the community – regarding the myriad legal issues that arise throughout their lifecycle.
Our practice is regional, national and international in terms of clients and reach. Working collaboratively with Meritas, a professional global alliance, we serve nonprofits worldwide. At the same time, we recognize that each client is unique and tailor our approach to help serve that client with its problems, now.
Experienced at the trial and appellate levels in state and federal courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court, our trial attorneys regularly litigate complex commercial matters, employment-related matters, civil rights cases and constitutional appeals. We have successfully tried cases before judges, juries, arbitrators and administrative officers, and have protected our clients’ constitutional rights from government encroachment. We also routinely prepare amicus curiae briefs when our clients’ interests are implicated in litigation involving other parties.
Alternative Dispute Resolution
When traditional litigation is not the best solution, alternative dispute resolution – especially mediation – can be a powerful tool in resolving disputes early, cost effectively and fairly. As one of the few law firms in the nation with a designated ADR practice, we are skilled at resolving disputes through ADR. In fact, The CPR International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution awarded Stradley its inaugural Law Firm Award for Excellence in Alternative Dispute Resolution, for our “commitment to principled and creative conflict-management and resolution.”
