THE Education team at leading North law firm Ward Hadaway has been shortlisted for a national award.
The specialist team, which advises a range of schools, academies, further and higher education providers, has been shortlisted for the Legal Advisors to Education Institutions category in the Education Investor Awards 2016.
Ward Hadaway is one of just eight law firms from across the country to be shortlisted in the category, which recognises outstanding service, excellence and innovation in the education sector.
Tim Care, Partner, Public Sector and Academies at Ward Hadaway, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be shortlisted for this award.
“The Education Investor Awards are widely recognised as the most prestigious and well-attended in the education sector and the competition is fierce.
“To be shortlisted for the Legal Advisors to Education Institutions award is a real achievement in itself and a fantastic tribute to the skills, experience and dedication of the Education team.
“We always strive to do the very best for our clients so it is really rewarding to have such independent recognition of the quality of the work which we do.”
