Commercial solicitor

We offer a real alternative to local authority support, helping schools both locally and further afield with their legal requirements.

Our clients tell us that the biggest difference in our service is the assurance that you will be advised by a qualified solicitor and, when needed, accompanied by a solicitor to important HR meetings or dispute conferences. We will not just be a voice on the phone, or a document to download. We will help your Governors and Head Teachers with all their legal enquiries, including meetings with Trade Unions and dealing with difficult contractors.

We will endeavour to cut through lengthy procedural matters to ensure timely resolution where necessary.

In every case, we offer an initial free diagnostic consultation where you can meet with one of our expert team to discuss your school’s overall legal requirements, or specific matters, with no obligation or expense.

For every client we then work with, we look to agree fixed fees, usually on a termly or quarterly retainer basis. We are confident that our package of assistance will compare extremely favourable with your current provision.
