The law relating to education has become increasingly regulated and complex and educational institutions are increasingly the subject of audits and legal challenges. The requirement for educational institutions to receive legal support is greater than ever.

We are able to provide the support you require, drawing on specialist disciplines from across the firm, including in relation to procurement, construction, research contracts, employment, immigration, research contracts and university spin-outs.
