Lawrenceburg Community School Corporation Recognized as a Top School System

Wood + Lamping attorney, Lisa deHart Lehner serving as Legal Counsel

In its 2017 Rating the Burbs edition, Cincy Magazine ranked the Lawrenceburg Community School Corporation (LCSC) 21 out of the top 70 public school systems in Southwest Ohio, Southeast Indiana and Northern Kentucky.

Wood + Lamping attorney, Lisa deHart Lehner, has served as LCSC’s legal counsel for more than 10 years. “We have advised Lawrenceburg Community School Corporation on employment matters, student disciplinary matters, real property tax issues, a large construction project involving a $13 million high school addition, and contractor and vendor disputes.  Most importantly, though, Wood + Lamping has advised LCSC regarding how to manage and limit its liability. The district has been involved in surprisingly few litigation matters over the last 10 years,” deHart Lehner commented.

Although it’s easy to overlook, schools are corporations with employees, governing bodies, contracts, financial issues, etc. Schools face many of the same legal issues as for-profit corporations except schools have added layers of regulations. “Lawrenceburg Community School Corporation has been a loyal client,” deHart Lehner observed, adding, “The administrators and I work together closely in communicating and coordinating activities so that the school avoids unnecessary legal issues and focuses on its mission – educating children. LCSC also has strategically invested in legal services on the front end of issues to avoid litigation expenses on the back end.”

LCSC Superintendent Karl Galey stated, “The Lawrenceburg Community School Corporation appreciates the years of legal support and advice from Lisa deHart Lehner and her firm, Wood + Lamping, to assure the school corporation makes justifiable, legitimate decisions in the best interest of students.”

Wood + Lamping congratulates LCSC for this recent recognition and looks forward to continuing our relationship with this valued client.
