We are the legal specialists for teachers. Both barrister and solicitor available to offer help and support every day.
Our firm is approved by the Bar Standards Board and our expertise is sought by the main English teaching unions.
First we listen and understand. Then we advise, guide and represent our teachers. If necessary, we fight for their legal rights.
Help with your regulator
We also represent teachers before the Education Workforce Council in Wales (EWC) and the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS).
Support in your employment
The first resort should be to your union, as they have local expertise and can accompany you to internal hearings. If that fails, we can advise on the merits of your employment dispute.
If a settlement cannot be agreed we can make the appropriate claims to an Employment Tribunal.
Representation in court cases
We defend teachers who are accused of a variety of criminal allegations before the courts.
We also assist teachers appearing before inquests and inquiries.
Teachers facing barring and/or disclosures by DBS benefit from our specialist advice in this delicate area.
If you are a teacher in difficulties we may be able help.
As we are very busy helping other teachers, we do ask that you email us a summary of your situation along with your contact details and any key documents. One of us will then respond as soon as we can.
