Clarkslegal has been successfully appointed to the inaugural legal panel of the University of South Wales, the sixth largest university in the UK.
Managing Partner David Rintoul, who is the firm’s relationship partner with the University, explained why this is such an exciting and highly significant appointment for both organisations:
“Clarkslegal and the University have developed an excellent relationship over recent years and we are working closely on several new and exciting initiatives, both in the UK and overseas. We are therefore delighted and honoured to have been appointed by the University and look forward to contributing to its future growth and success.”
The University of South Wales was formed following the recent merger of Glamorgan University and University of Wales Newport. Alongside Clarkslegal, Capital Law, Hugh James, Morgan Cole and Veale Wasborough Vizards have been appointed to its legal panel.
William Callaway, University Secretary of the University of South Wales congratulated all five firms appointed to the panel:
“The very diverse nature of higher education requires the provision of legal advice across a broad spectrum of subjects. All firms have a clear understanding of the education sector and are well positioned to support our position as a major player in the national and global higher education sector.”
This appointment helps to consolidate and build on both Clarkslegal’s expertise in the HE sector and presence in Wales, having been recently re-appointed to the legal panel of the University of Reading and appointed for the first time to the panel of Welsh housing association RCT Homes.
