The Trust have worked with Cook Lawyers for over six years and we have always had an exceptional level of service.

Cook’s give us the reassurance we need and provide extremely competitive rates. I would recommend them to all schools for their Human Resources and Legal support.

“Cook Lawyers provide outstanding support that puts the needs of the MAC first”

Cook Lawyers have supported our MAC for a number of years. Moving away from the LA HR services was one of the best decisions we have made. Cook Lawyers provide outstanding support that puts the needs of the MAC first. Resolving issues in a timely manner enables us to move forwards and focus on providing the highest quality education for our pupils. Cook Lawyers offer an efficient and professional HR service to meet the increasing demands placed on our schools.

– Ian Beardmore, Catholic Senior Executive Leader at The Newman Catholic Collegiate
