We are a nationally recognised education law firm with legal experts who are trusted by schools, academies, education providers and dioceses across the country.
We believe education is of fundamental importance for human flourishing and the common good. Our clients tell us that the service they receive from us is unique. We believe this comes directly from our commitment to the purpose of our firm: 'to improve lives, communities and society'.
Our goal within the education sector is not to maximise profit, but to become the leading national adviser partnering with individuals, organisations and policy-makers, to build a strong, more connected society.
Our dedicated team offers academy conversion services and annual legal support packages on a highly competitive fixed-fee basis, as well as general education law, employment and HR, and governance advice that's always tailored to the needs of your organisation.
Quite simply, we believe that the combination of our values and our expertise makes a significant difference.
The quality of service we received was outstanding. A highly professional, yet personal service. I would highly recommend Anthony Collins Solicitors to any educational institution.Mark Heuston, Executive Principal, South Newscastle Trust.
