Mitchell Charlesworth has secured 45 new academy school clients.
The 45 academy schools are based across the North West and the Midlands. They include Liverpool-based Northern Schools Trust, which runs three academy schools and Cheshire-based North West Academies Trust which runs nine academy schools.
The firm has also been appointed by Concordia Multi Academy Trust, which runs four academy school across Wirral and Cheshire and Endeavour Multi Academy Trust which runs four academies in the Midlands.
The firm has recently bolstered its specialist team of academy experts with the appointment of partner Alex Makinson, who has significant experience in advising academy schools and academy trusts.
Philip Griffiths, a partner in the academies team at Mitchell Charlesworth’s said: “To have added so many new clients during these challenging times is testament to the strength and expertise of the academies team. As budgets come under more and more pressure, our extensive experience of advising educational and not-for-profit organisations will deliver substantial and sustainable financial benefits for our clients.”
Alex Makinson, academies partner at Mitchell Charlesworth added: “It’s a pleasure to have joined such a progressive and successful firm. Clearly, the firm has a specialism in academy schools and my own expertise had added to the wealth of knowledge and experience Mitchell Charlesworth has to offer academy trusts.”
