Litigation, Dispute Resolution and Legal Process

OGC attorneys are responsible for managing all litigation and other legal disputes to which MIT is a party, including employment disputes, personal injury claims, contract and business disputes and intellectual property disputes. OGC attorneys also represent MIT in connection with administrative proceedings before various government agencies, including the EEOC, the MCAD and the Office for Civil Rights of the Department of Education. The OGC is responsible for hiring outside counsel to represent the Institute, when appropriate. In addition to representing the Institute in formal legal disputes, OGC attorneys work to prevent litigation and to resolve disputes before legal proceedings are commenced, whether through informal means or through more formal forms of alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation and arbitration.

OGC attorneys respond to and facilitate the production of documents or witnesses in response to subpoenas, legal demands, third party requests and other legal processes.
