My role

I specialise in governance for charities, social businesses and housing providers. I help clients to identify the right governance structures including bespoke arrangements and take them through the incorporation process and registration with regulators. I advise existing organisations on mergers and restructuring, trusts and permanent endowments, directors’ duties and in relation to other legal and regulatory issues they face. I also work with housing associations and other social and community led housing providers and help groups to set up community land trusts.

My experience

Having trained at a firm specialising in charity law, I have experience in working with a range of not-for-profit organisations, particularly faith-based charities. I advise on structural and governance issues and have experience advising charities and social businesses in relation to governance disputes at both board and member level. My experience has shown me the importance of supporting and assisting organisations to comply with legal and regulatory duties so that they can focus on serving their communities.

I am currently a trustee of the University of Leicester Students’ Union.
