VWV's dedicated team of higher education lawyers provides specialist legal support to universities nationally from our offices in London, Watford, Bristol and Birmingham.

We are a leading adviser to the higher education sector and are recognised in the legal directories as being top ranked in education, with Legal 500 commenting that VWV "has an outstanding track record of excellence in the HE sector so is the "go to" firm for complex claims, particularly involving academic staff".

Our HE employment team is dedicated to providing specialised, tailored legal advice to suit the particular challenges and demands faced by higher education institutions in employment and HR related matters. We understand the environment in which HEIs operate and provide innovative, pragmatic solutions on everything from day-to-day queries to complex, sensitive, strategic issues, with a focus on helping clients understand and manage risk.
