Home / Meet BDB Pitmans at the ISBA 2019 Annual Conference

The Independent Schools’ Bursars Association (ISBA) is the only national association to represent school bursars and business managers of independent schools. The ISBA annual conference brings together over 500 bursars from independent schools every year, offering topical updates for schools and networking opportunities and an exhibition of more than 150 professional advisors and companies.

We are proud to have supported the ISBA for a number of years and are invited to speak as leading experts at the annual conference to provide a legal perspective on matters affecting the education sector. We take this opportunity to help stakeholders stay updated with the latest legal and regulatory news that affects them. We also enjoy meeting with delegates at the exhibition to understand more about the issues that concern them and how we can help.
Our ISBA team will be speaking at the interactive panel discussions and will be at at the exhibition on Stand 93.
 Find out more about our ISBA and wider education team below.

Our ISBA team

Our education team and experience

Our team of leading education lawyers include members from our award-winning charities team, corporate, commercial, employment, pensions and specialist public affairs teams. We have specialist expertise in complex or unusual matters which affect the education sector. On a day-to-day basis, we advise the governing bodies and leadership teams of independent schools, as well as trustees of educational foundations, on all matters ranging from operational issues to governance and risk management.

Many in the team are school governors and trustees of education charities and therefore have first-hand experience of seeing issues from both sides. We also have a strong and effective relationship with the Charity Commission. Our involvement in the practicalities of the sector provides in-depth knowledge.

Offering a collaborative approach, we draw on expertise across the firm, sharing knowledge and experience to offer an integrated service ranging from debt collection and staff issues to mergers and collaborations and exploring opportunities overseas.

Very thorough in identifying possible risks and addressing them pragmatically.
