How can we help you?

The development aspect of our education practice is wide-ranging and we help investors, Government bodies (advising on both the Free Schools and Priority Schools Building Programmes), academies, private schools, and local authorities to deliver new and re-develop existing real estate assets and commercial property.

Our team advises on all aspects of the development process, from property issues around the initial acquisition of sites through to practical completion. We have the resource and expertise to assist with all types and sizes of development.

We have a long history of working in the education sector and as a result have helped many clients deal with challenges, such as navigating public sector and charitable requirements and obtaining funding. Through our expertise, we will work with you to mitigate any foreseeable future risks. Where acting for schools, we recognise that development projects are often a small but important part of your business and we will walk you through the legal steps involved with clear and commercial advice.

We work with a variety of different clients in both the public and private sectors and through our experience, we know what is likely to be acceptable to all parties. As a result, projects are completed more quickly and in line with your budget.

In brief

  • Proven expertise in working with both public and private sector clients
  •  In contrast to many other firms that specialise in education - we are a full service real estate law firm, which means that development and construction is our core business.
  • Our expertise is the result of a long history of working with clients in the education sector which means we have seen and dealt with most issues before, so can advise you accordingly
