The specialist law firm has climbed the rankings for a fifth year running, having added 16 new, large charities to their client list, taking their total number to 119.

Shivaji Shiva, senior associate at Anthony Collins Solicitors, said:

“We are pleased to break into the top 5 after several years of steadily improving our ranking.  This recognition reflects the team’s determination to help our charity clients solve the often complex problems they encounter in these challenging times.

We have continued to win new charity clients across our specialist areas of health and social care, social housing, education and faith, as well as the broader charity sector.  Moving up in the rankings is always a boost to the team and we are glad to cement our position as a top legal advisor to charities."

CharityFinancials is the leading provider of financial information for UK charities and non-for-profit organisations, and publishes a wide range of directories and data services, such as the Top 3,000 Charities, which includes the annual list.

The list ranks law firms by the number of large charities they work for. Top 3,000 charities are those that generated over £3.633 million in the last financial year, spent over £3.507 million, or have net assets worth at least £8.493 million. The 16 new clients have helped the firm to continue its rise up the rankings and break into the top five.
