The awards celebrate successes in the business of education, recognising “those that have made an outstanding contribution to the industry in 2021”.
Virginia Cooper, Partner and joint-Head of the firm’s Higher Education Team said:
“The award nomination is a fantastic achievement and reflective of the excellent work that the team has done over the last 18 months. We are proud of the strong partnerships we have built with our higher education clients and the reputation we have established across the education sector.

This growth has been bolstered by our appointment to the London Universities Purchasing Consortium (LUPC) framework and the recruitment of specialist Higher Education Corporate Partner, Rachel Soundy, Procurement and Subsidy Control Partner, Bethan Lloyd and Construction Legal Director, Niamh Batterton.”
