United Arab Emirates: Clyde & Co Advises Brighton College On New International School In Dubai
Last Updated: 16 December 2016

The school, opening in Dubai in partnership with UAE-based Bloom Education, will be located within an 89,000 sqm campus in Al Barsha South, which will also include a Centre of Excellence for the Arabic Language, Culture and the Arts. Brighton College Dubai will offer a K-12 British curriculum.

Clyde & Co previously advised Brighton College in its agreements with Bloom Education to develop leading English Curriculum international schools including those already established in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain. Our role this time also included advising Brighton College on the KHDA regulatory framework for establishing private international schools.

Ross Barfoot, Lead global education partner at Clyde & Co, commented: "We are delighted to have assisted Brighton College again in the region. Brighton College is the UK's top co-educational school (Sunday Times Parent Power League Table 2016), renowned for combining academic excellence with a wealth of extra-curricular opportunities, and we have developed a strong working relationship with them over the years."

Rishi Soni, Commercial Director at Brighton College International Schools commented: "Clyde & Co is a leader in the education sector and combine excellent legal skills with an unsurpassed knowledge and understanding of the regulatory framework for establishing schools in the region. Ross and his team were instrumental in helping us and Bloom Education navigate this regulatory framework."

Clyde & Co has quickly established itself as the go-to law firm in the region for education sector transactions.

The Clyde & Co team was led by Ross Barfoot and supported by Partner Keith Hutchison, Legal Director Stephen McKenna and Associate Aimy Roshan.
