Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts Now an Affiliate of the University of New Haven

University of New Haven

We represented the University of New Haven in connection with the affiliation of Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts in Old Lyme, Connecticut with UNH. This exciting opportunity for UNH allows UNH to enhance its experiential learning opportunities in the fine arts and adds to its growing footprint of campuses throughout Connecticut and beyond. In connection with the rare affiliation of two institutions of higher learning, a team of attorneys and paralegals at the firm addressed the many legal issues presented - ownership, corporate governance, 501(c)(3) and other tax matters, endowment and charitable giving matters, accreditation and regulatory consents, human resources, employee benefits, faculty, staff and student matters, real estate, environmental matters, housing (including condominium issues), degree requirements, financial aid, accounting, and lender consents.
