NOBLESVILLE, INDIANA (March 2, 2023) — Church Church Hittle and Antrim (CCHA Law) is pleased to announce the launch of its newly expanded Higher Education practice group. CCHA Law has advised institutions of higher education throughout Indiana and across the country on a variety of legal matters for the past ten years and with the addition of experienced leadership in this area, is excited to offer a dedicated practice group to the ever-changing landscape of higher education. 

The attorneys in the Higher Education practice group bring a range of experience that allows CCHA Law to proactively collaborate with higher education institutions and serve them in a variety of areas, including:

  • Athletics and Investigations
  • Business Transactions
  • Faculty Affairs and Employment
  • First Amendment Issues
  • General Litigation
  • Title IX Matters
  • Institutional Assessments
  • Student Affairs

The Higher Education Team, including attorneys from CCHA Law’s nationally-reaching Sports Law, School and Education Law, and Business Services practice groups, is particularly experienced in high-profile investigations and assisting executive leadership to navigate difficult decisions when issues threaten an institution’s central mission. 

“CCHA Law has such broad and varied experience advising higher education clients that it only made sense to formalize and launch a higher education practice group,” said James Nussbaum, CCHA Law partner, and leader of the new Higher Education practice group.  “Because of our attorneys’ breadth of experience we have one of the most robust higher education practices in the state and hope to become a ‘one-stop shop’ for the institutions we serve.”
