Legal services for the independent schools sector
When considering legal and regulatory matters, we understand that you are balancing a myriad of often conflicting demands such as reputational considerations, staff room morale and pastoral care, as well as “straight forward” budgetary and commercial considerations. We recognise that this means matters are rarely, if ever, straightforward but we have the experience and skills to identify and implement a timely and effective solution.
Our Independent Schools Group consists of specialist lawyers from across the firm including employment, charity, debt recovery, health and safety, planning and commercial contracts. The group is led by Tom Watkins who has specialised in the independent schools sector for over 10 years.
Our advice is pragmatic, solution-focused and cost effective. We pride ourselves on having formed and maintained long-standing relationships with numerous schools within the sector, working hard to understand our clients’ needs.
