When an independent girls’ school had the chance to join a group which runs more than 60 schools across the country, the governors knew that they needed in-depth legal expertise to help steer the school through the process.
When the transaction was complete, the chair of governors said: “HCR were appointed to act as our advisors in what appeared to be a straightforward transaction. Having asked around, their name kept coming up as real experts in the education market, a particularly lively place just now.
“They found a solution to enable us to do the right thing by the school. It wasn’t just an excellent technical solution. What really impressed me was that they have all the bases covered, and they developed a nose for how we work and fitted in perfectly. The governors didn’t get everything right first time, but thanks to HCR, we did finish up in the right place. Invaluable.”
