Lupton Fawcett has won a place on the Ofsted panel.
The Leeds firm will act for the education watchdog in the North East and will handle work under the Children Act 1989 in Yorkshire. The firm has been selected to act on criminal prosecutions in relation to daycare and childminding. It will advise Ofsted on a case-by-case basis as to the likelihood of a successful action. Tanya Forret of the corporate defence and prosecution department said: "The Ofsted appointment will fit well with the work that we're already doing in relation to health and safety, trading standards and other regulatory offences." Newcastle firm Dickinson Dees, Leeds-based Lupton Fawcett and Colchester-based Birkett Long have so far been appointed to the Ofsted panel, which is due to be finalised next week. A spokesperson for Ofsted said that firms across the country are still applying to take on casework.
