Solicitor in the Charities and Social Business Governance team.
I am a solicitor in the Governance and Commercial department and have a role within its dedicated Charities and Social Business Governance team. I act for a diverse range of clients but have a specialism in faith-based charity governance. I can advise on a range of issues including the formation of a charity, incorporation, governance and constitutional issues, trustee duties and responsibilities, charity property trusts and Charity Commission regulatory issues.
Prior to joining Anthony Collins Solicitors, I trained at a firm in the North West and spent a number of years post-qualification developing a specialism in charity law. I have experience in working with a range of not-for-profit organisations and have been an advisory committee member of a church property trust corporation. In my spare time, I am on the Board of a large voluntary adoption charity which operates across the North of England. I also champion the careers of future lawyers as a mentor for law students studying at the University of Law.
On 23 July, trainees from Anthony Collins Solicitors will host an ‘experience day’, which will involve various activities and presentations, with lawyers and non-lawyers from across the firm.
