Sherrards, whilst typically representing educational institutions, found itself defending parents in a fees dispute. Unaware of proceedings, our clients faced a Judgment obtained by the school after the parents had moved to mainland Europe.

We took action to ensure that the Judgment was set aside and a solution reached, ensuring that the child was protected in terms of pastoral care and reputation of the child and the family more generally.

Sherrards acts for a number of schools, colleges, academies and academic institutions, including in relation to commercial, property and contentious matters as required.
