Emma’s practice is comprised of advising 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 and spending time practising as a corporate lawyers. One of the things she enjoys most about her work is enabling charities and individuals to make a positive impact.

She writes articles and delivers regular training to charity trustees on a range of charity law issues. She is also a contributing author to the “Charity Law - Global Guide”.
