HCR Law Events

A bit about me

The range of issues which education providers face is very wide and varied, so my work with schools, academies and further education colleges is always interesting; my focus is on providing practical advice which work strategically and commercially for my clients.

Education law is always evolving, and I ensure that my clients comply with the law as cost-effectively as possible as well as running their institution for the maximum benefit of students.

Outside work, I love baking and exploring the Welsh coastline.
