Resolution of an independent school fees dispute

Resolution of an independent school fees dispute

Our clients’ son attended an independent school in 2012-2013. They decided to remove him from school at the end of 2013 because of ongoing bullying of their son in the school that they did not think the school was properly addressing. Our clients received Court papers from the school seeking to claim unpaid fees and costs.

We assisted our clients in responding to the Claim and preparing a Defence. We also corresponded with the school’s solicitors, and were able to negotiate a settlement of the claim under which our clients paid less than half of the amount that the school had been seeking, and no legal costs.

Our clients were happy with the outcome meaning that they did not have to pay the school all the fees they were seeking.

I would be very willing to recommend Match Solicitors to anyone else needing a specialist education solicitor. They were thorough, knowledgeable, worked in a timely manner and were generally a pleasure to work with.

Match Solicitors were highly recommended to us not only for their undisputed comprehensive knowledge of the SEN legal minefield, but for their understanding of autism and other disorders and consequent compassionate work ethic. Their diligence and consummate professionalism ensured that the Local Authority were forced to take our son’s case seriously. It is almost impossible to articulate how grateful we are to Rishi and Anita for their hard work and dedication.
