The legal and regulatory issues facing educational institutions are wide ranging and changing constantly. Our Education Team has the experience and strength of expertise to help you navigate and manage these issues with confidence.

We provide comprehensive and accessible legal advice to a range of educational institutions.

We advise the governing bodies and leadership teams of independent schools as well as trustees of educational foundations on all matters ranging from operational issues, to governance and risk management. Drawing on expertise across the firm, we share knowledge and experience to offer an integrated service to our clients ranging from debt collection and staff issues to mergers and collaborations and exploring opportunities overseas.

In addition to the award winning expertise within our charities team, we are also unique in having a public affairs team who can work with you in challenging circumstances to engage with stakeholders and manage media communications.


Many in the team are school governors and trustees of educational charities ensuring that we understand the challenges which schools face and so have first hand and practical experience of seeing issues from both sides.
