Adam Friel, one of the Country’s leading education law solicitors, has joined Geldards, as a Partner and the Head of Education Law in the firm’s London office.

Adam has over 10 years’ experience and expertise in this specialist field and has advised a huge number of families and individuals on their rights during education.

He is also regularly invited to be a speaker at events, talks, workshops and conferences to leading national charities, parent groups and schools regarding educational issues.
