Macfarlanes has been providing the Royal Parks Foundation with pro bono legal support since 2010. This is an invaluable service to the charity and is a key component in allowing for creative and ambitious projects to be realised. For example, their support enabled the planning and construction of the £2.2 million Isis Education Centre in Hyde Park.
Rupert Casey, Macfarlanes LLP Partner, says:
It has been a tremendous pleasure to work with the Royal Parks Foundation on a variety of projects over the years. Given the Parks' role in the lives of so many Londoners and visitors alike, it has been a privilege to help the RPF with the excellent work that they do to maintain and use London's globally admired green spaces for both educational and leisure activities."
Charles Martin, Senior Partner of Macfarlanes, became a trustee of the Royal Parks Foundation in 2013.
