Winckworth Sherwood has appointed senior charities lawyer Philip Collins.
Collins joined Winckworth Sherwood on 1 February as a Partner from Penningtons Manches, and follows the appointment in January this year of Alison Talbot, a partner who led the charity team at Penningtons Manches.
He brings to Winckworth Sherwood’s Charities and Social Enterprises practice considerable experience and a strong track record in the resolution of contentious trust and probate disputes for charities.
Winckworth Sherwood has a strong and highly rated Charities and Social Enterprises practice. Its clients include national charities, social housing providers, religious institutions, charitable foundations, museums, and grant-making charities.
Collins says: “Winckworth Sherwood has a first-class reputation in the charities and not-for-profit sector and I am thrilled to join Alison and build this practice further.”
Roger Fitton, Managing Partner at Winckworth Sherwood, says: “We are seeing a strong demand for our services from charities and not-for-profit organisations, and the appointment of Philip, following closely that of Alison, broadens the expertise and reach the firm already has in this sector.”
