With lockdown restrictions further lifting on 4 July, charities have a lot to think about.
Donna is a nationally-renowned specialist in the legal disciplines of wills, probates, trusts and estate planning. Described as “Brilliant yet down-to-earth” by Chambers UK, she has wide experience in the legal disciplines of wills, probate, trusts and estate planning and Court of Protection financial matters.
Since joining ACS as a trainee, Donna has strengthened her skills, and the support provided to clients, in stewarding their assets and managing their finances to achieve their long-term family provision, financial and business goals.
David leads ACS’s work for social businesses, including significant work for cooperatives, community organisations – including leading umbrella body Locality – and social enterprises. He is a national specialist in community asset transfer and the community right to bid, and has led on major projects in our work around the re-modelling of public services including our current support to Birmingham community libraries.
David also delivers high-level governance support to a range of organisations, including dealing with board disputes and constitutional issues.
Senior partner Peter Hubbard said: “I am very pleased the firm is recognising Donna and David for their hard work across our private client and social business sectors. At ACS we are proud of the development opportunities open to our staff, and by recognising the outstanding legal talent within the firm we are able to continue to develop our client offering and pursue our social purpose. These, and all promotions within the firm, are well-deserved.”
ACS has also promoted Gemma Bell, Raj Bhangal and Charlotte Measures to senior associates and David Evison to associate.
