We focus our activity on specialist sectors where, importantly, we seek to influence debate, policy and practice at a national level. We’re always ahead of the important issues affecting our clients' sectors, and are committed to making a difference, which explains why we work with such dedication and passion—whatever our position in the company. 

Our work is centred around seven sectors. In each, we strive to achieve an extraordinary level of expertise and understanding, which allows us to think and act beyond the ordinary legal disciplines.

Education

We work with schools and academies in areas of significant social deprivation and those with special needs, to positively influence education. We want to help schools flourish, allowing those who are most disadvantaged in society to access high-quality educational resources.

Social business

Helping “not just for profit”, values-driven organisations, such as co-operatives, mutuals and social enterprises to achieve their goals and enjoy long-term, sustainable futures. Because we’re also a principled business, we understand the balance between a strong commercial focus and a values-driven ethos. Click here to find out more about how we provide legal advice to social businesses.

Charities

We have an understanding and empathy with the voluntary sector, which underpins the firm’s ethos.  We have been advising charities since our foundation in 1973 and we equip and enable charitable, as well as faith-based, organisations, to be effective in their spheres of activity. We provide professional legal and strategic support services that add value to the missions and ministries of the organisations we are privileged to serve. Click here to find out more about the the work we do in charity law.

Health and social care

Our focus in this area is about working with organisations who serve vulnerable people due to age, mental or physical incapacity, mental health problems or the consequences of addiction. We use our specialist skills to help both organisations and individuals achieve their goals. Click here to find out more about the legal work we do in the health and social care sector.

Private legal services for individuals

The leading Midlands’ firm for childcare and family law, our support for individuals is focused on two areas: supporting them and their families at pivotal times of their life, from birth through to death, helping them preserve and protect their assets, and helping people facing complex and critical events, such as personal injury, clinical negligence, childcare issues, loss of capacity and loss of employment. Click here to find out more about how we can provide legal advice to individuals.

Housing

One of the top UK firms in the field of social housing, our passion is contributing to national regeneration and creating successful neighbourhoods where people want to live. We act for registered providers across the country, with a particular focus on those who engage with their local communities and deliver a range of diverse services. Click here to find out more about the legal support we provide to the housing sector.

Local government

Recognised for our specialist service and approach towards collaboration with in-house legal and strategic teams, our experts have a reputation for technical excellence and innovation, especially in the area of joint ventures, regeneration and property development work, strategic corporate projects, procurement and litigation and dispute resolution.  We are also supporting local governments in services for vulnerable people provided, or commissioned, by councils. Click here to find out more about the legal advice we provide to local authorities.
