The European Court has upheld the long-standing principle that parties to a dispute should be able to choose their lawyers without having to go through a tender process (or use a framework).
We’re delighted to announce that we have once again been ranked fourth in the list of the top legal advisers by number of charity clients in the Top 3000 Charities 2019 directory.
The Top 3000 Charities 2019 recognises the top 3,000 charities nationwide, including their advisors. Our fourth-place ranking is based on the number of charities within the top 3,000 that we work with, to help them achieve their goals, as well as our own aim to improve lives, communities and society.
Our consistent placing in the directory reinforces our position as leading national advisors, supporting charities across a range of services including governance, employment, property and funding work. We are also specialist advisors to faith charities.
Dominic Curran, Partner and Head of Charities sector, said:
“We continue to grow our charities and faith-based client work and this ranking is a testament to the hard work and dedication shown by our expanding charities team over the past year. We’re thrilled to be recognised nationally and it’s another great example of how we’re delivering on our mission of ‘improving lives, communities and society’ through our work with like-minded clients.”
