We are grateful to the following Headline Sponsors whose support and sponsorship are an integral part of maintaining our charity and the work we do. Their valuable contribution enables CISC to continue to grow and reach out to Catholic Independent Schools across the globe, inspiring and supporting a community of schools with shared faith, beliefs and values.
Our ethos is based on understanding client’s needs, being good listeners and looking at the big picture. We work together to provide clients with seamless, complementary legal advice covering all aspects of law.
This approach has helped us build a reputation for excellence amongst both private and commercial clients, whilst our strategic focus has made us national leaders in the charity and education sectors.
We currently hold both the Law Society’s Lexcel accreditation and are Investors in People (IIP). We are independently recognised as a leading law firm by both Chambers and the Legal 500.
We are ranked one of the UK’s top 200 law firms by The Lawyer.
