Experience

I am a solicitor in the Charity & Social Enterprise department at Bates Wells.

I assist the team with advising on a range of matters including, for example, incorporating new entities, applications to the Charity Commission to register new charities, amending governing documents, general governance queries, and filing relevant documents with Companies House and the Charity Commission.

During my training contract at Bates Wells  I assisted Bates Wells’ Employment, Corporate, Commercial & Banking and Dispute Resolution teams.
