Francesca Quint

| Call 1970

Profile: Education

Experience and Expertise

Francesca frequently acts for charities and other bodies involved in specific activities such as education and housing provision, and for individuals and charities proposing or affected by charitable gifts, especially where the rules on tax relief are engaged. She is therefore familiar with the relevant law in these areas and can often adopt or adapt a solution which she has considered or found to be workable in a previous case.

Her experience of acting for or in relation to schools extends from maintained schools to independent schools and from colleges to universities as well as to student unions and other charities associated with schools, colleges or universities. A recent educational institution client commends Francesca for her “huge expertise” and comments that her “written advice is wonderfully clear, also she is incredibly responsive”.
