My role

I advise staff and board members of charities, social enterprises and other not-for-profit organisations on the creation of such organisations, their dissolution and most of the issues they encounter during their lifespan

This includes advising on the restructuring and re-organisation of charities including merger and the development of complex collaboration arrangements.

My experience

I have been active in the charity sector for over 15 years.

I am ranked as a “notable practitioner” by Chambers 2015 for Charities work. Peers say I am “proactive and gets the job done,” offering clients “well-rounded advice.”

I regularly write on changes in the law relevant to charities, and recently contributed to The Guardian’s Voluntary Sector Network debate on Charitable Incorporated Organisations (CIOs).

My specialisms

  • Complex governance advice to charities
  • Advising on ‘charity proceedings’ - disputes relating to the internal administration of charities
  • Charity mergers and restructuring
  • Support to federated charities, sport and leisure charities and professional institutes
