Independent & Private School Solicitors

Richard Nelson LLP's education solicitors can help parents of children in independent and private schools navigate issues including fees, discipline and safeguarding.


Ensure the best for your child

Sending your child to an independent or private school is a significant investment in their education and their future, often involving a financial sacrifice for the family.

Our education solicitors have experience in advising and representing families who experience problems with independent and private schools. Depending on the wishes of the family, we can assist you in the background to help you to navigate the best way forward, or if you prefer, we can take over corresponding with the school.
