With 11 new top 3000 charity clients this year, we now act for 140 of the top 3000 charities across the country, maintaining fourth position in the national rankings. The work that we do with charities, and the difference that our legal expertise makes in helping charities achieve their own goals, is something we are proud of and fundamental to helping us achieve our purpose of improving lives, communities and society.

Shivaji Shiva, Senior Associate at Anthony Collins Solicitors, said: “We are pleased to consolidate our position as a top-five charities practice, continuing our run of double-digit growth, by winning another 11 eligible clients. Our ranking reflects the team's determined efforts to help charities operate effectively in these uncertain times.

As our recent conference highlighted, charities have found the past year remarkably difficult. They have had to weather continued scrutiny of charity governance and fundraising, and ongoing public-sector funding constraints, as well as wider political developments. We have worked hard to strengthen our relationships with long-standing clients despite those challenges, and we are delighted to have won instructions from new charity clients across our specialist areas. External validation of this sort 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 top legal advisors list.
