How we add value

We take the time to get to know your establishment, working in collaboration, which in turn enables us to provide you with strategic and effective tactics suitable to your organisation.

As a Brachers client, you will have access to our free forums, seminars and training courses, which are suitable for business managers, bursars, trustees, governors and Senior Leaders and deliver valuable information and practical solutions to make sure you stay ahead of changes in your sector.

Many of our education team are also school governors, giving us in-depth sector knowledge which enables us to deliver enhanced legal support that meets our clients needs. This also means we have a detailed understanding of the specific challenges that educational establishments face on the ground, as well as appreciating the key role of governance and challenges that governors can face, knowledge that informs our work and enables us to deliver more valuable legal and business advice.
