Christian Community Solicitors

At Ellis-Fermor & Negus, we strive to offer a service where legal knowledge and expertise combine with a compassion for, and understanding of Christians and the Christian community.

In addition to our extensive range of services to the general community, our ethos and experience enables us to help in areas particularly relevant to the Christian community such as:

Christians and Human Rights

We are experienced in acting in defence of those denied their legal rights because of their faith. At the 4th Midlands Christian resources exhibition, David Negus gave a seminar on freedom of expression for Christians. Contact us to receive free detailed seminar notes.

Churches and Charities

Churches regularly need advice on legal matters such as those concerning property and the employment of staff. Charity law is changing rapidly and at Ellis-Fermor & Negus, we are able to advise and assist, to keep you and your Trustees up to date and compliant with your obligations. We regularly find that our clients appreciate lawyers who understand the issues and sensitivities involved in church and Christian communities and who can make practical suggestions from years of personal hands on experience.

Ecclesiastical Law

We have experience in representing those involved in cases brought under the provisions of Ecclesiastical Law.
