In a constantly changing education landscape, it’s more important than ever that you have expert support and guidance from education lawyers you can trust. Our specialist team of award-winning lawyers and HR consultants understand the competitive, challenging environment in which you operate. You need robust, cost-effective advice that’s helpful, pragmatic and helps deliver effective solutions to the challenges you face.

We support the full range of education institutions in the sector, including schools of all structures (maintained, faith and independent), academies and multi-academy trusts (MATs), further education and higher education institutions (HEIs).

As one of the largest education teams in the country we deliver a comprehensive portfolio of legal and HR services. We also draw in expertise from across our full-service law firm to assist clients with their needs – from construction projects, employment issues and funding matters, to protecting intellectual property, health and safety, and disputes.
