Burnetts appointed to national education services panel

Burnetts has been appointed to a national panel to provide legal services to the education sector.
The Carlisle-based law firm, which also has offices in Penrith, Cockermouth and Newcastle, joins the panel of the Crescent Purchasing Consortium (CPC).
This has 2,518 member organisations from the school, academy and further education sectors.
Burnetts is one of five firms appointed to the North West and North East panels alongside much bigger national law firms such as Bond Dickinson and Eversheds. Education law is one of Burnetts’ specialist areas.
Partner and head of business services Vaughan Jones said: “A tremendous amount of work goes into putting together these tenders with the process often moving through several stages over many months.
"Despite our expertise in education, we are always the underdog in these national contests so it is great to come out on top. The CPC is a great opportunity to develop our base of education clients outside Cumbria.”
