Our corporate/commercial team offers a unique combination of expert advice and extensive sector experience, in respect of all aspects of company and corporate matters that institutions may encounter.

Whether institutions are growing, diversifying, downsizing or fundraising, we provide our clients with solutions that balance their legal and commercial needs. We advise on a range of pioneering and innovative matters including the following:

  • Mergers between institutions 
  • Revised group structures

  • Corporate joint ventures with both local and international collaborators 
  • Public and private collaborations

Our extensive network of international offices enables us to help institutions establishing branch campuses or guide institutions through the regulatory regimes where distance learning students may be based.

At the same time as managing the most complex of strategic issues, we also handle the full range of day to day matters, such as:

  • Procurement 
  • Subcontracting 
  • Apprentice agency agreements 
  • General purchasing documents 
  • Privacy 
  • IT
  • Competition law
