Our higher education lawyers understand the education landscape and our legal advice can help you find practical and innovative legal solutions to the challenges and opportunities that you face.
The higher education sector in England and Wales includes some of the world's leading education institutions. Higher education institutions (HEIs) make a major contribution to the economy and to the regions in which they are based.
Our dedicated team of higher education lawyers provides specialist legal advice and support to the HE sector nationally via our offices in London, Watford, Bristol and Birmingham. We pride ourselves on providing quality, timely and jargon free legal advice to HEIs, with transparency on fees and competitive rates.
Higher education institutions are increasingly complex, international organisations which have been subjected to an unprecedented level of change over the last few years. As the pace of change shows no signs of slowing, the need to be flexible and able to do things in new ways has never been more necessary than it is today.
Whether you need legal advice on student matters, employment, immigration, compliance, contracts, intellectual property and brand protection, property, procurement, or even more complex matters, we have legal experts available to support you in adapting to the evolving landscape in which you operate.
When you work with us, you can be confident that you are kept one step ahead of regulatory changes and able to manage the risks and opportunities that you face with confidence.
Our experience supporting higher education institutions enables us to not only provide quality legal advice but to help you to identify and make the most of the challenges and opportunities you face. We are developing an online training programme for HEIs and are always looking at ways to develop new products, utilising technology to streamline processes and save you time.
In October 2018, we were appointed to two prestigious national legal services frameworks involving debt recovery and intellectual property.
We have now created a dedicated portal for HEIs. OnStream brings together a collection of resources, know-how and legal solutions in one place. It represents a change in our support for universities and HE institutions facing increasing legal and regulatory challenges. HEIs have free access to this marketing leading resource.
Our Education team is ranked in Chambers & Partners UK wide category and Legal 500, in recogniton of the breadth and dept of legal expertise we provide to the sector as a leading education law firm.
VWV have a well-deserved strong reputation within HE sector. They are subject matter experts on equality and diversity and are quick to update on latest reviews and case law. But their real strength is their ability to correlate likely implications and actions needed by HEIs by their developed understanding and knowledge of Higher Education institutions.
