Education

Planning & Property Solicitors in the Education Sector

Our Commercial Property Department is recognised for its excellence in the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners, and can handle all aspects of land and property relevant to education clients and schools hoping to convert to Academies. We have all of the necessary skills and experience to provide legal advice on infrastructure documentation, licences to carry out works and leasing arrangements.

From our experience in assisting other clients we are very aware that commercial property and planning issues may arise either in the course of Academy conversions, or generally for clients who are looking to maximise the effectiveness of their assets. We have also been appointed as advisers to further and higher education institutions who are dealing with changes and restructuring.

Our property lawyers are very aware of the needs of the Education Sector and very much in the forefront of providing advice to clients supported by and working closely with other lawyers from across the firm. We adopt a collaborative approach to work alongside our clients.

Schools already converted or considering conversion to an academy or free school will need to review their property requirements and management which will result in complex legal issues as they leave the control of Local Authorities. We are here to help schools and other clients to make their property and estates fit for purpose for the future.
