Marriott Harrison advises on cross-jurisdictional school purchase

Monday 16 May 2016

Corporate partner Jonathan Leigh-Hunt and corporate associate Simon Orriss advised International Schools Partnership (“ISP”) on the acquisition of Park House English School in Doha, Qatar.

This purchase is the latest in a series of acquisitions by ISP as they continue to grow their global network of schools.  Marriott Harrison was delighted to again act for ISP having previously advised on the purchase of the Cambridge International School in February of 2015.

ISP will now oversee the management of Park House English School as it expands and continues to deliver an exceptional English curriculum to its students in Doha.  Charles Robinson of ISP said “All of us at ISP were delighted to once again work with Jonathan and the team at Marriott Harrison. Given the cross-border nature of the issues involved their can-do attitude and commercial knowledge were critical in delivering this exciting deal on the tight schedule that was required.”

The MH team comprised Jonathan Leigh-Hunt, Simon Orriss and Olga Ayers (Corporate), Mark Lavers (Property), Bob Cordran (Employment) and Aideen Burke (IP/Media).
