Associate in the governance, funding and corporate team
I provide specialist governance and regulatory advice primarily to charities, social businesses and housing associations. I work with organisations that are aiming to meet a need in their community helping them to identify the right governance structure and arrangements and then supporting them with legal and regulatory advice as they evolve and grow. I have expertise in corporate structures, board arrangements, board member duties and responsibilities, mergers and asset transfers.
Having trained at a firm specialising in charity law, I am able to use my knowledge and experience of this sector when advising clients. I have extensive experience in setting up new charities and social enterprises, working with Boards and Trustees to navigate legal and regulatory issues and improve their governance arrangements or organisational structure. 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.
