Decentralisation requires the sector to become commercially aware as providers take over responsibility for their budgets, contracts and policies.
Harrison Drury has responded by forming a dedicated team of education solicitors from a diverse range of disciplines to ensure clients benefit from commercially-sound advice and full service support.
We provide an integrated service embracing all areas of education law affecting those in various positions within the sector. Our local offices make it possible for us to be a responsive and collaborative firm able to meet with you in person to provide practical solutions backed by strong technical know-how.
Our team of education law solicitors are experienced at dealing with the legal issues faced by nurseries, schools, academies, colleges such as handling long-term absences, under-performing staff, complaints from parents, health and safety matters and all kinds of property enquiries. The team also has expertise in education disputes, defending claims from teaching staff and students, child care issues, the right to education, special needs education and home schooling law and regulations.
