Qaisar Sheikh, Head of Education Law, has been ranked in Band 1 of Chambers and Partners in the category of Education Law. He is joined by only two other solicitors in this prestigious band.
Chambers and Partners comments:
Qaisar Sheikh is very highly regarded in the field for his broad practice representing parents, children and young people. He frequently assists with appeals to the SEND Tribunal regarding school placement and the contents of Education, Health and Care plans.
This is what our clients and other leading lawyers said about Qaisar:
He is extremely passionate and has a very good technical brain in terms of being able to spot obscure points of law.
Qaisar is personable, knowledgeable, and has a huge wealth of experience which shines across in his handling of education law appeals.
He is a great tactical lawyer who know when to push a point and when not to.
Qaisar leads our education practice having worked in this field for the best part of a decade.
We are also pleased that our senior solicitor in community care, Marian Shaughnessy is also ranked in Chambers and Partners for her education work. Chambers and Partners comments that Marian “is experienced in handling judicial review and SEN appeals. She regularly assists clients with exclusion, provision and discrimination laws.”
