Legal Services


Whenever you are thinking of either commencing an international project or a partnership/collaboration with an overseas party we can assist you by:

(a) Advising as to what type of overarching agreement is best suited to your project’s needs;

(b) Identifying who the right people are who need to be involved in any resulting agreement;

(c) Ensuring that the project has followed the quality assurance sign-off process;

(d) Outsourcing specialist legal advice on the regulatory environment of any overseas country where the partnership/collaboration is taking place; and

(e) Drafting and negotiating the agreements to ensure that all regulatory requirements have been met and that a legally enforceable contract is put in place that clearly sets out each parties’ obligations.

Please note that these bespoke contracts are usually tailored to reflect the particular circumstances of the agreement and can therefore take time to prepare and negotiate. Do please contact us with as much information as possible about the project and anticipated timeframes at the earliest opportunity.

We are happy to provide awareness seminars for individual schools or services tailored to meet your needs.
