With no small thanks to Lucy for her tenacity, polished and steely professionalism, sense of humour, attention to detail, and “can do” approach. We could not have achieved this without her and we are immensely grateful for Lucy’s advice and accessibility.
Recognised as a Key Lawyer and a Rising Star
Tenaciously digs her way through documents to come up with highly usable advice and solutions
I am a charity law specialist with a varied practice.
I advise on a range of legal issues that affect charities and not-for-profits of all sizes: models of philanthropy, setting up new charities, governance and constitutional issues, regulatory dealing with Charity Commission, grant funding arrangements and restructures including mergers and incorporations.
I have a particular interest in technical charity law issues and structures, such as trusts, endowments and Royal Charter charities and regularly engage with policy initiatives and legal changes in this area. My view is that a disproportionate amount of charity time and money is spent on administration and regulatory compliance and that this needs to change.
