Tailored advice with unparalleled industry knowledge
Our education lawyers, based across our global office network, are ready to help clients in whatever market they operate in or wish to develop and grow. We act for a range of the world’s largest and best-known education institutions.
Working on all aspects of a client’s education business, we draw on our long track record of success in this sector to deliver pragmatic, innovative and commercial advice.
While we are a powerful force in the education sector on six continents, we have particular strength in the UK, Middle East and Asia Pacific regions. We specialise in advising UK independent schools and universities to expand their operations.
We play a crucial role in helping these institutions co-operate with investors and local partners to establish branded campuses in territories such as China, Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, the UAE, Qatar, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and throughout the wider APAC and MENA regions.
A significant part of our role is to advise investors and international education providers on growth opportunities, merger and acquisition activity and overall corporate governance. At all times, we tailor the support we provide to reflect local market practice and the jurisdiction’s regulatory framework.
From supporting private investors in their first forays into the sector to advising operators in new and challenging jurisdictions, we offer expert guidance across all legal aspects of education.
