  • I advise on charity incorporations
  • I advise on the status of restricted, designated and endowment funds and, in particular, on the removal of restrictions as to use and on the release of permanent endowment both by cy-près scheme and by the use of statutory powers
  • I’ve advised on the charity law aspects of complex land development transactions including as to obtaining the required Charity Commission consents
