The CaritasData annual list ranks law firms by the number of large* charities they work for. Anthony Collins Solicitors added 11 new large charities to its client base over the past year, taking the total number to 61. This led to the firm continuing its rise up the rankings to number ten from 13 last year.

Shivaji Shiva, senior associate at Anthony Collins Solicitors, commented: “We are delighted to break into the top ten following several years of steadily increasing our ranking. This reflects both our determination to support the charity sector and the dedication and commitment of our team.

“We have continued to win work in specialist areas such as social housing, health and social care, education and children, and faith communities thanks to our growing reputation within the charity sector and our commitment to building long-term relationships with organisations within our chosen fields. We will continue to deliver the very best work we can, and we hope to further cement our position as a top ten charity legal advisor during the coming year.”

CaritasData 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 3000 Charities that includes the top legal advisors list.

*Charities that spent or generated over £3million in the last financial year OR have net assets of over £6.5million
