Services

Within the niche umbrella of Education Law, Match Solicitors offer professional guidance and support, as well as legal representation, in a wide variety of different circumstances. The kinds of cases in which we participate include but are not limited to the following: 

  • Cases against institutions, where our specialist education lawyers act on behalf of children, parents, students, teachers, professors and academics. 
  • Cases at all levels of education - we are as skilled in the law relating to schools and children, as we are in further & higher education law - and we advise and assist clients ranging from nursery to post doctoral education.
  • Cases within the regulated sectors - where we act for professionals such as doctors, nurses, social workers, lawyers, psychologists and teachers.
  • Cases within the academic sector - we have an experienced employment team assisting with employment challenges in this area.

Our practice is divided into four main service areas:

Testimonials

I am totally delighted by the services provided to me. The crucial time when I was emotionally and physically drowned by an academic accusation, Match Solicitor gave an enlightenment to my case and my academic career,I won my case and I am now doing degree in Adult Nursing. Very friendly, co-operative and efficient staff

Mohina Basnet Rai, Ashford

The service was first class and I was encouraged by the Solicitors sound knowledge of education law. Having a child with special needs is a challenge to any parent and the whole process of going to an educational tribunal can be quite daunting. Match Solicitors was able to get the job done professionally and to the highest standard and yet still retaining a very caring and human side which was very reassuring.

Mrs O Akagbosu, London

We were very happy to hand over our case to Match Solicitors and allow them to do what they do best - they won our appeal. They make no guarantees but at least you know, whether you win or lose, they have done their best for your child.

Mr & Mrs O'Dea, Surrey
