I advise charities, social enterprises and educational institutions on variety of commercial, charity law, education law and safeguarding issues.. I am a trustee of Montessori St. Nicholas Charity and a governor of maintained primary school in central London.
My experience includes:
The Alliance brings together 5 leading musical theatre conservatoires (Urdang Academy, Bird College, ArtsEd, Mountview and the Guildford School of Acting) to share best practice in training and raise the profile of musical theatre as a specialist art form in the UK and overseas.
When Palmer’s prepared to join Seevic, I advised both boards on process and governance, due diligence, and the transfer of all assets to Seevic.
On the incorporation of its trustee body, becoming an academy sponsor and successfully obtaining consent from the Charity Commission to release over £20m of its permanent endowment to enable it to fund the development project of one of its beneficiary schools.
This work involved advising on due diligence and monitoring arrangements, drafting safeguarding policies, reviewing funding agreements and advising trustees on their duties.
