Third sector governance and commercial work is a privilege: at its best, it’s about helping people do good for causes that move them. My long-standing interest in the running of arts and culture-based organisations as a musician means, in some ways, I was a charities lawyer well before I started studying law.
Giverny provides strategic and legal advice to individuals and organisations on all aspects of charity law, including:
- establishing new entities
- governance and policies
- fundraising and charitable giving
- mergers and agreements with external bodies
- organisations in distress and winding down
As a trustee of the Cathedral Music Trust and co-founder of a prison education charity, Giverny is a well-rounded charities practitioner with experience in the third sector spanning nearly 10 years. A dedicated classical musician, Giverny is particularly interested in organisations in the arts, cultural, education and faith sectors.
From household names to grassroots not-for-profits and philanthropists aiming to direct their money to important causes, Giverny has a personable approach and aims to offer practical and proportionate advice to clients at all points in their organisation’s lifespan.
Giverny joined Russell-Cooke as a newly qualified solicitor in 2022 after training at an international City firm with a top-ranking charities and philanthropy team.
