Emma is an associate in our Charities team. She advises charities and other not-for-profits on the legal issues they face both on a day-to-day basis and in a strategic context.

Emma moved into charity law after training at a City law firm. One of the things she enjoys most about her work is advising clients on complex legal issues whilst helping to enable them to make a positive impact.

Emma advises household name charities, religious organisations, schools, Royal Charter bodies, universities, colleges and other non-profit organisations on a wide range of charity law and related issues. She has particular expertise in mergers and restructuring, the formation and registration of new charities, governance and constitutional matters, fundraising and regulatory issues.

Emma writes articles and delivers training to charity trustees on a range of charity law issues and she is also a contributing author to the “Charity Law - Global Guide”. Alongside her work as a Charities lawyer Emma is also actively involved in the firm’s corporate responsibility initiatives.
