The awards, which recognise outstanding contributions to the education sector, bring together the leading companies in the sector and are highly coveted – they were presented at a dinner at the Hilton, Park Lane, on Wednesday.

In making the award, the judges made it clear that the “powerful testimonials made Harrison Clark Rickerbys truly stand out from the crowd”, and that their “passion for education shines through.”

The team, led by partner and Head of Education Kristine Scott, focuses solely on education and includes specialists in corporate, charities, commercial, employment, immigration, real estate and regulatory law.
