The Charity Commission has the power to appoint an Interim Manager to act in the administration of a charity if it considers there has been misconduct or mismanagement.  It “aims to appoint Interim Managers with the right skills and experience at a cost that will provide the charity with value for money.”

The charities team at Anthony Collins Solicitors has been approved to accept Interim Manager appointments for several years, and our appointment was renewed this year after a national procurement exercise.

Shivaji Shiva, senior associate at Anthony Collins Solicitors, said: "This appointment recognises the team’s ability to provide expert and cost-effective support to charities faced with rapid and potentially damaging change."
