My role

I provide advice to charities and health and social care organisations, with a particular focus on fundraising regulation and advice, commercial/contractual partnerships and charity law and governance.

I have particular expertise in children’s charities and animal charities, and a personal interest in conservation charities.

My experience

I was the in-house legal counsel for the Barnardo’s, where I provided advice and support on the whole range of legal matters that arise in a large-scale charity. I am currently a board member and trustee of a UK charity that funds animal-free medical research.

I have spent much of my work focus on advising charities how to comply with fundraising legislation, including the recent fundraising regulator code.
