Alex D. Ivan is a shareholder with Kennedy & Graven, Chartered. He advises schools concerning various issues, including U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights complaints, special education, data practices, and other general school law matters. His practice focuses on defending schools in civil litigation and preventing and responding to special education complaints.
Prior to joining Kennedy & Graven, Alex practiced in Arizona with a firm representing over 40 public school districts throughout that state. He brings a unique perspective to representing schools because he is a former teacher.

Alex has this to say about Kennedy & Graven: I am honored to be a part of Kennedy & Graven, and I consider it a privilege to provide legal counsel to Minnesota’s public school districts which dedicate themselves daily to the success of all students in their care.
