Tozers welcomes new partner James Evans to their charity law team
Tozers Solicitors is delighted to welcome new partner, James Evans, to their charity law team. He adds considerable strength to an already highly regarded specialist team.
James is a leading charity and social enterprise law specialist, with over 20 years’ experience of supporting a wide range of charities and social enterprises across the South West and beyond, including several national and international organisations. He also works regularly with academies, further education colleges, universities and independent schools.
James has recently advised on several significant charity mergers, collaborations and restructurings, and academy school conversions and re-brokerings, and has helped establish numerous new charities and social enterprises for a wide range of clients.
He is an active member of the Charity Law Association, a school governor and a member of the certification panel which adjudicates on awards of the Social Enterprise Mark.
Like Richard King, Tozers’ chairman and leader of its charity law team, James is a ranked lawyer for Charities UK-wide in the legal directory Chambers UK 2016. The 2016 edition says: “He is extremely knowledgeable in charity law matters, and is extremely practical.”
James Orpin, who heads up the firm’s commercial department, comments:
“We are thrilled that James is joining us. His knowledge and experience adds a strength that coincides with our growth strategy and adds value to the high-quality service we provide to our clients, especially charities and schools. Furthermore, we can now boast that our charity law team includes not one but two nationally ranked lawyers – which is unmatched in the West Country!”
