South coast firm Lester Aldridge has won a three-year contract to provide a wide range of legal services to Bournemouth and Poole College.
Lester Aldridge won the new role in a competitive tender. It will advise on property, data protection legislation and employment issues as well as providing guidance on intellectual property, contract reviews and health and safety legislation. Richard Dimbleby, principal and chief executive of the college, said he was impressed by the firm's specialist knowledge of education issues. He said: "The college is becoming increasingly aware of its work within a commercial environment. It's important that we, as an organisation, operate like a business and relate to other businesses professionally. This means being fully aware of the legal implications of working in such a way. Lester Aldridge is the right law firm for us to work with, as the college gains in stature and profile."
