About Ben

  • Independent schools

I specialise in advising independent schools and other charities on wide ranging areas of education law, with particular focus on reputation issues, pastoral, safeguarding, historic abuse allegations, exclusions, parent/pupil complaints, data protection, parent contracts, admissions and contentious and non-contentious employment/HR matters.

I have written and spoken widely on these areas, providing comment in The Times, The Guardian, The Lawyer and Law Society’s Gazette and at BSA, ISBA and AGBIS training events.

I live with my wife and three children in West Sussex where I serve as a trustee of our local Parochial Church Council.
