Our Commercial team supports all types of educational establishments, from local-authority-maintained schools through to large academies, MATs, independent schools and colleges, providing them with the legal expertise and advice required to effectively reach a fair and balanced agreement.
This advice can be provided through a range of methods depending on specific requirements; whether that be a telephone call, via emails, face-to-face meetings, reports or video calls. Where appropriate, we can also train staff to understand the law and procedures involved in effective contracting, enabling the process to be confidently managed in-house.
In addition to our advice, our clients have access to monthly newsletters on commercial and educational matters to keep them up-to-date with relevant changes in the law.
Having worked with many organisations in the education sector, our Commercial team is well-equipped to support business managers, headteachers, financial officers and chief executives with reviewing, negotiating and finalising a range of commercial agreements, whilst keeping the cost of legal support to a minimum.
Whether you are seeking to install new photocopiers, partner with another school to provide Early Help Services or enter into an MoU, our Commercial team can support you.
As proof of our ability and expertise, our Commercial team has been consistently recognised in The Legal 500 and are noted for their “commercial approach,” “exceptional service” and “fast response times”.
“Saima delivered a ‘GDPR Update’ virtually to our members who are mostly school business managers across Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire in November 2020. Saima was a pleasure to work with and ensured her presentation was relevant to our members and covered the issues they are currently facing.
“The content of the presentation was excellent, with very clear guidance and practical tips given and feedback from our members echoed this. We hope to work with Saima again in the future.”
