About Nick

Nick is a member of the firm’s board. He specialises in corporate and governance advice in the education sector.

Nick is independently ranked as a leading lawyer for education nationally and leads the education team on corporate and governance matters.

He has significant experience of advising executive teams and boards in the social housing, corporate and, for the last 10 years, education sectors across a wide range of issues. He is regularly used by education clients as an external ‘sounding board’ by their executive teams and boards. Nick uses his expertise to make the complex simple. In addition to providing corporate and governance advice to education institutions, Nick also provides executive coaching support as a qualified and accredited executive coach. Nick sits on the firm’s board and in 2019 was invited to join the board of the Foundation for Education Development.

Nick has extensive experience of advising a wide range of education providers - education charities, academies, schools, further education and sixth form colleges, universities, local authorities and not-for-profit organisations - on governance issues, joint ventures, collaborations and establishing trading companies.

He acts for many of the largest academy groups in the country and has particular expertise in developing innovative approaches to academy groups, collaborations in the education sector (including all types of college and school on collaborations and joint ventures) and Teaching Schools.

Nick also recently undertook a secondment with a Russell Group university providing support to their in-house legal team.

He is a regular contributor to our thought leadership programme and has an established network of key contacts in the sector. In 2018 Nick helped the firm launch our podcast channel #EdInfluence which is aimed at strategic leaders in the sector.
