Commercial Contracts Advice for the Further Education Sector

All organisations, including further education colleges can have a complex web of commercial contracts and arrangements with stakeholders, suppliers and other third parties.

There are many issues that colleges need to take into account before entering into these sorts of arrangements and careful thought needs to be given to a number of issues, including public procurement, the form of any agreement, the intentions of the parties and their attitude to risk.

We have the experience and specialist knowledge to advise further education institutions on a broad range of commercial issues.
