About Womble Bond Dickinson

Womble Bond Dickinson's specialist charities practice spends 100% of its time advising charities, institutions, foundations and not-for-profit organisations across the breadth of the sector, from educational and religious organisations to national charities and professional membership bodies and is highly ranked in legal directories across the UK.

The charities team draws upon the strength and breadth of expertise of the wider firm which has more than 120 partners and around 450 lawyers based in eight major cities across the country: Bristol, Edinburgh, Leeds, London, Newcastle, Plymouth, Southampton and Teesside. So no matter what legal issue your charity has, it is likely that we will be able to provide you with specialist support. 

Despite its size, scale and depth of resource, WBD's charities team remains down to earth, approachable and accessible. The team prides itself on providing high quality technical legal advice and the highest standards of service, tailored to our client's needs. The team is led by Emma Moody and Jo Coleman.
