The specialist law firm has climbed the rankings for a third year running, having won 14 additional large charity clients. According to the recently released directory, Anthony Collins Solicitors has taken on more new top 3,000 charity clients than any of the other top 20 law firms.
Shivaji Shiva, senior associate at Anthony Collins Solicitors, said: “We are very pleased to take another step up the rankings. This reflects the team’s undiminished determination to support our charity clients as they work to meet rising demand for their services in an ever more complex legal and financial environment.
“Over the past year we have again won work in specialist areas such as social housing, health and social care, education and children, and faith communities thanks to our growing reputation for building strong relationships and delivering truly valuable solutions. Achieving a step up in the ranking is a real boost for the team and we are pleased and proud to consolidate our position as a top ten legal advisor.”
CaritasData 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 that includes the top legal advisors list.
The CaritasData annual list ranks law firms by the number of large charities they work for. Top 3,000 charities are defined as those that spent or generated over £3.35million in the last financial year, or have net assets worth over £7.7million. Anthony Collins Solicitors added 14 new large charities to its client base over the last year, taking the total number to 75. This helped the firm to continue its rise up the rankings, reaching 9th from 10th position last year.
