They also provide advice to charities across other areas of law such as Real Estate, Employment, IP/trademarks and litigation work. The successful candidate will advise a range of institutional and household name charities on a wide variety of regulatory, governance, commercial and corporate matters and also advise high net worth individuals and well-known corporates on their philanthropic giving, including setting up charitable foundations, and advising on (and negotiating) collaborations and funding agreements.
