Tony was recruited by the firm as trainee solicitor prior to qualifying in 1988. He became a partner in the firm in 1994.
Tony is vice chair of governors at Hutton Rudby Primary School, the company secretary of Macmillan Academy and a director of the Endeavour Academies Trust.
Tony heads up the corporate and commercial division of Jacksons’ education team. He has many years’ experience of advising schools on a range of issues including a number of academy conversions. Tony was at the vanguard of the academy conversion programme, working with the Department of Education as long ago as 2006 to formulate the documentation pursuant to which MacMillan Academy (formally MacMillan College) became an academy self-convertor prior to the introduction of the Academies Act conversion process. Tony is able to contribute not only his professional knowledge and experience, but also his governor’s perspective on the issues which affect schools.
