DLA Piper acts pro bono for arts charity Community Focus
DLA Piper has acted for arts charity Community Focus on a pro-bono basis, providing advice that has helped secure the long-term future for the charity.
Community Focus is an inclusive multi-arts centre based in Barnet. The charity works to encourage members of the community to participate in the arts, to gain confidence and to challenge barriers through integration and innovation.
The DLA Piper team was led by Ben Barrison and Ben Battell, both in the real-estate team in London.
Barrison advised the charity on opposed lease renewal proceedings and helped secure sufficient time for Community Focus to find new premises, while Battell advised on the negotiations and documentation for the charity’s new premises at Friary House in Friary Park, Barnet, under a 20-year lease, thereby securing the charity’s home for the foreseeable future.
