I am also a member of Paris Smith’s Charities team. I advise charities of all sizes on a variety of matters including:

The law can be complicated. I help clients protect themselves against legal risks and help them understand their contractual and compliance obligations. I give plain-English advice which focuses on the areas of concern for you or your business.
