Shivaji Shiva, (pictured) senior associate at Anthony Collins Solicitors, said:

“We are delighted to climb the rankings again. This reflects the team’s commitment to helping our charity clients make the difficult but necessary decisions to succeed in these challenging times.

“We work hard to understand the often complex regulatory environments in which our charity clients work. The last year has seen that effort rewarded with new clients from charities across our specialist areas of focus including 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.”

Anthony Collins Solicitors added 28 new large charities to its client base over the last year, taking the total number to 103.
