Founders of Match Solicitors

Match Directors - Salima Mawji and Anita Chopra

Anita Chopra and Salima Mawji set up Match Solicitors in 2005 and through their hard work, passion and ethical approach built the firm to be one of the recognised leaders in education law.

Widely respected in the industry, Anita and Salima have both been ranked annually in Chambers & Partners and Legal 500 due to their in depth knowledge of education law and high success rates they had for their clients. Under their leadership, the firm also achieved a Tier 1 ranking in both Chambers & Partners and Legal 500.

Anita and Salima were often approached by the UK media for their opinion on education law, and have appeared on BBC Breakfast; ITV News; Sky News; BBC Radio 4 and have been quoted in a number of national and local press such as The Daily Mail, The Times, Birmingham Mail, The Telegraph and The Huffington Post.

In June 2018 after 13 highly successful years, Anita and Salima sold the Match Solicitors brand to another leading educational law firm Sinclairslaw, which now makes Sinclairslaw the leading Education Law practice in England and Wales.

Upon exiting Match Solicitors, the Partners said “We could not have thought of a better home for the Match Solicitors brand. This union between the two brands now creates an education law firm that is a force to be reckoned with.  As we take our career breaks we look forward to the growth of the brand under the umbrella of Sinclairslaw but will continue to remain close friends with the team at Sinclairslaw.”

All testimonials


The service was first class and I was encouraged by the Solicitors sound knowledge of education law. Having a child with special needs is a challenge to any parent and the whole process of going to an educational tribunal can be quite daunting. Match Solicitors was able to get the job done professionally and to the highest standard and yet still retaining a very caring and human side which was very reassuring.

Whilst the SENDIST appeal process requires patience and clarity, we found Match Solicitors provided a faultless service. Diligent whilst being understanding. Our son is now in the school we required and is thriving due to the support of Match Solicitors throughout the process.

Match Solicitors offered me a nearly perfect service. Match Solicitors play a very important role in protecting Students.
