Our specialist team of charity law solicitors will work hard to understand the charity’s objectives and goals, providing advice to help founders make the right decisions.

Please contact Claire Ramsden on 01482 316727 or email cra@sjplaw.co.uk.

Claire has both the experience and patience to deal with TMCP. Claire has carried out legal work, in negotiating and renewing our lease agreement, with the telecoms company’s use of space within a local Methodist Church. Claire’s persistence resulted in a deal which covered our costs for all works in arranging the lease renewal.

Claire’s technical knowledge has been invaluable to us; she is approachable, able to explain and clarify anything ‘technical’. She is very quick to respond, keeps us notified on a regular basis and lets us know when she is out of the office in case we need her help.
