We will work with you to find the best costs solutions for the services you need

We understand that few sectors are under so much scrutiny or have faced as much change as education.  Our dedicated cross discipline education team can help with all aspects of education related employment law and we are here to help.

We can assist with everything from drafting new policies and procedures, providing impartial oversight of employment policies, practices and processes to enable governors to satisfy themselves that legal obligations and risks are being properly managed, guiding you through restructuring and reorganisations, and providing lively and interactive training options to up-skill your senior team.

We have acted for both sides in academy conversions and have experience of college mergers.  We have advised boards of governors and sat across from teaching unions in collective negotiations so we understand the complex world education managers find themselves in. 

We will work with you to find the best costs solutions for the services you need, including early case assessments and menu options for tribunals cases, fixed price support for settlement agreements, policy,  contract and governance reviews, governor training and TUPE support and fixed price monthly or annual retainers.  We can provide light touch advice when all you want is to know is that you are on the right lines or we can be at your side for every step of the way in providing investigation or process support in a complex whistleblowing, discrimination or disciplinary case.
