Hannah advises charities and social enterprises on incorporation and registrations, governance issues, commercial operations and mergers and transfers.
Her particular expertise is in contracts and grants and she acts for a number of publicly funded organisations. She frequently advises on collaborations and partnerships, procurement and trading. She is also experienced in the establishment of academies and free schools, both as part of single model and multi-model academy trusts.
Hannah works closely with the firm’s Corporate team in the area of social finance, which includes advising organisations seeking to raise funds and advising charities on their social investments.
An active member of the Charity Law Association, Hannah recently participated in its working party on the Law Commission’s consultation on a new social investment power for charities.
Hannah trained and qualified at Linklaters and subsequently worked at Capsticks prior to joining Stone King in 2010. Her decision to specialise in the charity sector was in part influenced by her secondment at an international children’s charity.
