We are always looking for opportunities to create successful outcomes today and into the future.
Novus means building our practice around clients’ needs first.
We are committed to client-focused innovation, embracing technology and alternative billing practices to better serve our clients.
Novus means being focused on our clients’ needs from their perspective.
We are engaged thought leaders in our areas of expertise and our counsel is informed as much by developments in society as in the law.
As fearless thinkers, we advise our clients (institutions of higher education and California private sector employers) in the areas where we have significant depth of legal and practical knowledge:
- California & Federal Employment (Advice, Policy Work, and Training)
- Faculty Labor Relations
- Higher Education Governance
- High-Level Internal Investigations
- Strategic Partnerships and Mergers in Higher Education
- Student Affairs (Advice, Policy Work, and Training)
As problem solvers, we are not satisfied with an answer that does not work for our clients. We leverage legal technology solutions and consortium-based approaches to help efficiently address the escalating legal issues that our clients are facing. We collaborate with policymakers, other law firms, and industry associations to get the best, most cost-effective results for our clients.
As engaged community members, we believe in better, more equitable working and educational environments. We help clients who want to lawfully implement pay equity, effective labor relations, diversity and inclusivity goals, sexual harassment mitigation techniques, and other best practices.
