The UK education sector is considered to be the 'gold standard'. Over the past decade the sector has become increasingly attractive to domestic and international investors. In particular, we have seen investment being made in the independent schools sector, the higher education sector and the training sector.
Why choose us?
As leading UK education lawyers, we have acted for investors making investments in all parts of the education sector. We provide specialist legal advice and guidance to individual investors, private equity houses and other institutional investors.
We have acted for private equity investors in relation to their buy-and-build strategy and on very large projects have worked alongside retained lawyers undertaking education-specific due diligence exercises.
We are delighted that we have joined forces with strategy consultants Cairneagle. Cairneagle is a fast growing, multi-award winning business that operates globally, recognised as EducationInvestors' 'Strategy Consultancy of the year' for the fourth time in 2021.
Our relationship spans many years and this development enables us both to better support clients to determine strategic direction and offer wider choice, insight and access to a broad range of specialisms. Read more about our collaboration.
