My experience.

I am a qualified solicitor specialising in work for charities and social enterprises and I own and manage DK Legal.  I have more than ten years’ expertise in the not-for-profit sector and understands the challenges facing such organisations and the need for clear and cost-effective solutions to legal issues which arise.

I qualified as a solicitor in 2007.  Since then I have worked in private practice, as a legal advisor at the Charity Commission and as Head of Legal for a major UK charity.  In 2016, I founded DK Legal with the ambition to provide the sector with access to high quality, specialist legal advice at an affordable fee.

I have served on the boards of various charities and am currently part of the leadership team establishing a new micro-finance charity. This focus professionally and personally reflects my passionate support for the vital work which charities, not-for-profits and social enterprises contribute to our society.
