Trainer: After qualifying as a solicitor, Tim left to be the manager of a charity where he had volunteered in most of his spare time for several years.  Then after 10 years in the charity sector, he returned to being a solicitor specialising in corporate law, intellectual property and charity law.  For smaller local charities and community groups he provided free advice and in 2014 he was awarded the inaugural Community Works ‘Sector Star’ award for greatest contribution to the community by a business.  Since retiring as a solicitor in March 2020, Tim is continuing to provide advice for local charities and community groups as a volunteer with Community Works.
