My role

I lead on our work with community based organisations including Tenant Management Organisations (TMOs) and Community Land Trusts. My expertise is primarily in governance and commercial matters, providing specialist governance, regulatory, contractual, charity, board and company secretarial support, to a broad range of organisations nationally. I have also recently been involved in drafting a legal definition for use in legislation.

My experience

Having extensive experience of negotiating and drafting contractual and governance documentation including asset transfers, providing and facilitating training sessions and away-days for clients and at National sector conferences, I also often ‘project manage’ matters where a number of issues are on-going at any one time. I regularly attend and support Board meetings, and deal with governance disputes and conduct issues.

My specialisms

  • Governance advice and documentation
  • Negotiating, advising on and drafting contractual arrangements
  • Sector expertise of broad range of community based organisations including registered providers, social enterprises and charities
  • Board meeting support, including conduct issues and disputes
