The charities, education and social enterprise group at HCR Hewitsons is led by Virginia Henley from Northampton, where much of the practice is based. Nevertheless, it calls upon the Cambridge office for specific support in key practice areas. Property partner James Simpson and employment partner Elizabeth Swinburn frequently advise charitable institutions. Elizabeth Davies and associate Emma Satterley in the private wealth practice also contribute their expertise.
