Education law solicitors

Education law solicitors

Our education law team bring legal knowledge and technical expertise together with really practical advice and guidance on how to achieve your objectives for your child. Mike Pemberton has experience in assisting parents through the special educational needs maze and has a special interest in autism related issues.

Our education law specialists work alongside our recognised community care team and we have found that a holistic approach taking account of the needs at home and schooling is often useful in cases where there may be disabilities.

Mike’s role in school governance outside of work (Chair of a Primary School Governing Board and Multi Academy Trust Board Director/Trustee) provides a distinct perspective on situations and the ability to weigh up both sides of the issue in order to suggest solutions which may resolve matters between the parties.

We are able to assist with the areas of law associated with education from admissions, exclusions and special educational needs to judicial reviews. For advice call our specialist solicitors on 0161 696 6159.
