Dispute Resolution

Dispute Resolution for Academies and Schools

In our increasingly litigious society, academies and schools face the prospect of more complaints or claims being made against them. They may also wish to pursue claims they have against others and to ensure they take proactive steps to protect their position.

How can we help?

We appreciate that disputes can be divisive, disruptive and expensive to resolve.

We will discuss your objectives at an early stage and consider the practical steps involved in pursuing a resolution alongside issues such as health & safety and regulatory compliance, insurance cover for any claim, reputation protection and, of course, cost.

In our experience most complaints or claims are most effectively dealt with when advice is sought at an early stage. Our lawyers are always happy to discuss your concerns before matters start to escalate, helping you avoid protracted disputes.


Added Value

Schools often face particular types of disputes or challenges which are most effectively handled by lawyers who know and understand the education sector, particularly the interface with other bodies such as the Department for Education, the Education Funding Agency, Ofsted, Charity Commission, Information Commissioner and local authorities. Our knowledge of specialist tribunals and court proceedings also enables us to finesse our advice to help our clients achieve the best outcomes.


For an initial discussion on resolving a dispute, please contact Yvonne Spencer on 0207 665 0870.

Technically impressive and good at providing practical advice in plain English.
