Higher education building

In the ever-changing world of higher education, it is more important than ever that you can rely on a specialist team of dedicated and trusted education lawyers that understand the globally competitive and challenging environment in which you operate.

Our team of higher education lawyers will work with you to help you to make and take opportunity in the rapidly changing legal, regulatory and commercial landscape you operate in, both domestically and internationally. We will do this by providing genuine insight and a fresh perspective to the issues you face as well as delivering client focused solutions rather than technical answers to defined legal questions. We are always looking to influence, innovate and challenge the status quo. We add value wherever we can.

Our clients choose us because of our sector expertise, but stay with us because of our exceptional service.

What we do

We work with senior leadership and management teams and in-house legal teams in higher education institutions (HEIs) to support them to enable informed and strategic decision making and identification and management of risk.

We also engage with sector organisations to support their work and contribute to debate and policy.

We provide a comprehensive range of legal services to HEIs including:

  • Academy sponsorship
  • Banking, finance and funding
  • Commercial services
  • Constitutional and governance advice
  • Corporate legal services
  • Dispute resolution and litigation
  • Export control
