big win for Browne Jacobson’s education team

21 November 2016
Browne Jacobson's education team has been named the winner in the ‘Legal Advisors to Education Institutions’ category at the Education Investor Awards 2016.

The firm fought off competition from a range of top firms including Eversheds, Pinsent Masons, Clyde & Co and Veale Wasbrough Vizards to win the title for the third time despite this year’s awards being the most competitive yet.

The awards, now in their seventh year are aimed at both public and private sector education providers as well as investors and lenders, and professional services firms who operate within the sector. 

The team was judged by a panel of 21 industry experts and recognised for the outstanding contribution they have made to the education sector during 2015/16.

The judges commented:

“Browne Jacobson works with over 1,000 organisations and focus on schools and academies. They have a team of 40 lawyers, ranking highly in education nationally and they have worked on over 1,000 academisation projects, representing 20% of all conversions in England. Most importantly, their relationships with schools, other education providers and organisations is unrivalled. They are at the cutting edge with a wide variety of influential clients, strong thought leadership and growing turnover significantly. In summary, an outstanding year.”

Also commenting on the team’s success Mark Blois, Head of Education at Browne Jacobson, said: 

“It’s fantastic that we have been acknowledged as leaders in the market again and a true reflection on how hard the members of our education team have worked over the last 12 months.”


Browne Jacobson is independently considered to have one of the leading education law teams in the country holding first tier national rankings in both independent legal directories Chambers and Legal 500. The firm has a client base of more than 1000 education sector organisations including independent and maintained schools, academies and their sponsors, further education colleges, diocesan boards of education, local authorities, regulatory bodies, educational charities, universities and professional associations.
