Firm Assists Independent School With Growth Initiatives
Founded in 1984, Eagle Hill-Southport School serves 110 students in kindergarten through 8th grade with language-based learning differences and attention issues. In May 2017, the Southport, Connecticut school purchased an historic building on the edge of its campus, expanding its footprint and, in recognition of its incredible support from the Southport community and in line with a new strategic plan, the school changed its name and brand identity to “The Southport School.”
Pullman & Comley assisted the school and its board with navigating the legal requirements for the historic name change, which included a restatement of its certificate of incorporation. Our attorneys also negotiated the school’s line of credit and represented the school in connection with the construction contract for the centuries-old building.
