My role

I advise a wide range of charities on all aspects of charity law, including governance matters, restructuring, and trustee roles and responsibilities. I also advise on a wide range of issues that charities may face, including property trusts, contracts, trustee payments and regulatory compliance. In addition, I advise schools that are converting into academies.
