Flint Bishop have fought off fierce competition to be nominated for the award for ‘Legal Advisors to Education Institutions’ in this year’s Education Investor Awards.
The awards are organised by the Education Investor magazine which has been around for almost seventy years. They aim keep the education industry up to date with news, analysis, helpful information as well as policy changes in their monthly magazine.
Since 2010 they have been recognising excellence in five categories – Advisory, Education Infrastructure, Education Providers, Suppliers and the grand-prix, which covers mixed awards, including an outstanding contribution award.
The ceremony, which is scheduled for 11th November at The Brewery, London – will see 28 awards handed out during the glamorous black tie evening.
This is the second time in the last two years that Flint Bishop has been nominated for such a prestigious award and is up against competition from firms with a combined turnover of £650m including DAC Beachcroft, Eversheds and Browne Jacobson.
Head of Employment Law, Rob Tice who is a major contributor to the education offering at the firm, currently has over hundred schools signed up to its HR and Employment law offering says “We’re delighted with the shortlist again this year. Not only have the team been working hard to secure and support more schools in both our local and national market, the entire firm has been contributing to offering an all-round service for these establishments including our Litigation, Commercial Contracts and Commercial Property departments, as well as our newly launched initiative which aims to support entrepreneurs in the area. These initiatives have allowed us to partner with our local University, as well as Derby College.
I’m extremely proud of all of the efforts of the staff and these awards evidence the hard work they have been putting in. Well done to everyone.”
