Commercial Contracts Legal Advice for Schools

As with any other organisation, schools, academies and colleges have a need for commercial contracts and arrangements with stakeholders, suppliers and other third parties. When deciding to enter into a commercial agreement, there are a number of considerations which should be taken into account to minimise the likelihood of a legal dispute down the line.

Our education team can advise on a wide range of contractual issues including helping you to identify and manage risk in commercial contracts, negotiate key terms or look at protecting your intellectual property. We provide straightforward education legal advice to fit your needs, whether it is to review supplier terms and conditions or supporting you through negotiations on a key contract. We can help you put in place robust, commercially-focused agreements that protect you and your school.

Schools converting to become an academy or free school will need to review their commercial contracts as they prepare to leave the control of Local Authorities. This can seem a complex and daunting task, but we can help to bring clarity and organisation to the process by ensuring that your commercial contracts serve you well and are fit for purpose in the long term.
