Solicitor in the governance and commercial department working with charities and social businesses.
I am a solicitor in the governance and commercial department working primarily with charities and social businesses. I assist with the incorporation and restructuring of such organisations and advise them on a range of governance and legal issues they face during their existence.
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 acted for clients in charity proceedings. My experience has shown me the importance of supporting and assisting trustees to understand and fulfil their legal duties.
