  • Landlord and tenant law
  • Property and estate management

“Steering the growth of a Multi academy Trust is quite a challenge for its leadership team – and the focus inevitably becomes a legal one. Working with Lyons Bowe during the last twelve months, our frustration levels have reduced considerably, despite even greater activity. Apart from their sage advice and speedy work being valued greatly, I now feel confident that their (often transparent) prioritisation of multiple issues is aligned seamlessly with our evolving strategy. I would recommend them unhesitatingly to anyone contemplating such work.”
