We are adept at tailoring our services across all our practice areas to serve religious institutions and other faith-based organizations. In addition, we have unique expertise protecting the rights of these clients in employment law, land use, and other First Amendment matters.
We develop and implement codes of conduct that honor the mission and treat all employees with respect. When conflicts arise, we offer strategies for navigating them efficiently. Our clients call on us to investigate workplace misconduct and, if necessary, to pursue alternative dispute resolution in accordance with their values and beliefs.
Land Use Disputes
Religious institutions face unique challenges in procuring the space to facilitate activities for their members. We understand the challenges and how to overcome them by advocating for our clients’ rights under the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (RLUIPA) and other federal, state, and local laws pertaining to land use and zoning.
We advocate for our clients’ religious liberties in a variety of other areas. Whether the need is for advice on new legislation, public comments on a proposed rulemaking, representation in administrative agency proceedings, or litigation of civil rights claims in federal court, we have the acumen to respectfully but persistently pursue favorable outcomes for our clients.
