Service overview

Our education team advises schools, further and higher educational establishments, both in the public sector and private sector, in relation to all legal matters arising in the course of your operations.

We recognise that you may often require advice on several matters at the same time and across different areas, from staff contracts, employment disputes and student complaints through to data protection, commercial contracts, property and regulatory related matters.

We assemble a dynamic, multi-disciplinary team, led by your designated partner, who can act as, or work alongside, your in-house legal counsel. They will have a detailed picture of your overall affairs to coordinate all of our advice and to ensure that we adapt and respond according to your precise requirements.

Service highlights

We advise on, draft and negotiate a wide range of commercial contracts, including contracts for the sale of goods, services agreements and hire agreements. In each case, we map out your objectives to ensure these are fully documented and protected. We also help you to review and negotiate any standard terms and conditions presented to you when purchasing goods or services from your suppliers.
Employment issues often require prompt advice and we respond accordingly, providing you with pragmatic advice on your possible options and the best action to take. We provide a full employment law service, including preparation of employment contracts and staff handbooks, and advising in relation to disciplinary, grievance and other internal procedures, dismissal, redundancy and putting settlement agreements into place.
Data protection has become much higher profile in recent years. We advise on your rights and responsibilities under the UK data protection laws, including the GDPR. If required, we can undertake a full data protection audit of your institution’s procedures help you ensure compliance with the complex and evolving requirements in this field, and dealing with subject access requests.
We have a successful track record of bringing, defending and settling cases from start to successful resolution. With well-established relationships with specialist barristers, we are well placed to assemble a formidable team tailored to your institution, dispute and resources. We can also assist in representing you in front on any professional regulatory bodies, including OFSTED.
