Dickinson Dees expands charities team
22 Oct, 2012
Leading law firm Dickinson Dees has expanded its award-winning Charities team with the appointments of Samantha Pritchard and Mark Honeywell.
Samantha, who studied at Durham University, trained and qualified as a solicitor at London-based law firm Russell-Cooke, where she has worked exclusively with charities and not-for profit organisations.
She commented: “I am looking forward to being able to continue to develop and expand my charity and not-for-profit specialism within an enthusiastic and forward-thinking team at Dickinson Dees with big ideas for the future”.
She added: “My ambition is to become a ‘go to’ lawyer for all things relating to charities and social enterprises”.
Samantha is a trustee of the UK section of the organisation known as Peace Brigades International, which seeks to protect human rights defenders, primarily in Central and South America.
Meanwhile the Charities team has been further boosted by the appointment of Mark Honeywell, who has qualified as a solicitor after training at the firm’s Yorkshire office.
Mark said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my work with the team as a trainee and it is a great honour to continue this as a fully-qualified solicitor. This is an exciting and busy time for the Charities sector and I look forward to playing my part in maintaining the firm’s excellent reputation in this field.”
Emma Moody, head of Charities at Dickinson Dees, commented: “I am delighted we have appointed both Samantha and Mark to the team. This means we have an even stronger offering to the Charities and Independent Schools sector and will allow us to further expand the breadth and quality of services that we provide for clients.”
