Double Award Nominations at Flint Bishop

Rob Tice, Head of Employment Law at Flint Bishop

The largest independent law firm in the region and Marketing Derby Bondholder, Flint Bishop, has received two prestigious nominations recently for its outstanding work.

Firstly, the firm was nominated for the award for 'Legal Advisors to Education Institutions' in this year's Education Investor Awards.

The awards are organised by the Education Investor magazine which has been around for almost 70 years and recognises excellence in five categories: advisory, education infrastructure, education providers, suppliers and the grand-prix, which covers mixed awards, including an outstanding contribution award.

We’re delighted with the shortlist again this year. Not only have the team been working hard to secure and support more schools in both our local and national market, the entire firm has been contributing to offering an all-round service for these establishments
