North: Public sector

Education

Within: Education

Consisting of ‘good communicators and strong characters’, clients recommend Ward Hadaway’s schools and academies sector team ‘without hesitation’, which is partly due to its ‘substantial knowledge in the education sector, which gives clients assurance, comfort and peace of mind’. Much of its work for schools, academies and multi-academy trusts pertains to transactions and academy conversions as well as employment, property and compliance matters. As significant work in the transactional space, team head Tim Care acted for Co-operative Academies Trust in a number of school acquisitions, which included various property, contractual and employment issues, while he assisted North East Learning Trust with academy conversion issues. The latter client also received advice on the academy conversion of a PF2 school. In other work, Graham Vials provides regular advice to the Diocese of Durham Multi Academy Trust on general employment law and HR issues. Paul Scope and public sector estates practice head Karen Andrews are other names to note.
