How Can Con Help You?
Con has advised charities of all kinds for more than 15 years and specialises in helping clients with the governance and the strategic challenges that they face. His aim is always to provide clients with the right advice at the right time, while always acknowledging that our quality of service depends not only on our understanding of the law and regulation, but also on our commerciality and ability to think creatively and pragmatically.
Meeting Your Needs
He trained and practised as a tax lawyer with Linklaters before deciding that he wanted to advise charities; but his early experience in advising on tax taught him to analyse issues for clients in a way which helps to give them the information they need in order to assess risk and make other decisions.
Con is particularly interested in the way in which organisations change over time, the importance of the relationship between trustees and senior management and collaboration between organisations.
Con is recommended within the Citywealth Leaders List which recognises the best advisors for private wealth management, charity and private client work.
