Safeguarding Your Career

At NachtLaw we understand how the law applies to the rights and interests of college and university employees. Our employment law attorneys advise and represent professors, academic researchers and university administrators in a variety of important legal matters. We can help you protect your interests and safeguard your career with regard to:

  • Academic integrity: We assist clients in protecting their reputations from the effects of allegations of academic wrongdoing.
  • Tenure: We advise clients who are experiencing problems related to tenure, compensation and other employment issues.
  • Harassment: We represent professors who have been harassed or subjected to bullying within academic departments.
  • Discrimination: We protect the rights of academics who have been discriminated against because of their membership in a protected class. If you believe you are the subject of employment discrimination related to your age, sex, gender, national identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy or other factors, get the legal guidance you need.
  • Defensive investigations: We help professors protect their legal rights and reputations when they are falsely accused or need to defend themselves in an internal (university) or government investigation.
