Guidance

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

Much of our work involves defending teachers and headteachers at risk of prohibition by the Teaching Regulation Agency (TRA).  We are the most experienced law firm in this field.

We also represent teachers before the Education Workforce Council in Wales (EWC) and the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS). 

Support in your employment

Often we advise on employment disputes involving alleged misconduct, suspensions from either schools or Academies and unfair and/or discriminatory dismissals.

If a settlement cannot be agreed we can prepare and present the appropriate claim to an Employment Tribunal.

Representation in court cases

We defend teachers who are accused of the most serious criminal allegations before the courts. 

We also assist teachers appearing before inquests and inquiries.

Teachers facing disclosure and/or barring by the DBS benefit from our specialist advice in this delicate area.
