Ellis Jones and Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra unite in harmony

Regional law firm Ellis Jones Solicitors and the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra (BSO) have tuned up for a new partnership.
The three-year agreement is the continuation of a seven-year collaboration aimed at making a meaningful difference in the community through the power of music.
The partnership gives the world-famous orchestra, and its musicians and staff, essential legal advice. This allows the BSO to focus on its music and community engagement so it can serve its audiences and fulfil its charitable objectives.
Ellis Jones’ provision of pro-bono advice for the prestigious orchestra – a registered charity – ­demonstrates its commitment to social responsibility and the local communities it serves.
Nigel Smith, Managing Partner at Ellis Jones Solicitors, said: “This agreement opens an exciting new chapter in our relationship with the BSO.
“We are fortunate to have such an internationally acclaimed orchestra and registered arts charity on our doorstep which also does so much valuable work in the community.
“It is a privilege to play our part in its continued success by providing legal guidance so the BSO and its exceptionally talented musicians can concentrate on spreading joy, entertainment and emotional support through the power of their music.”
Chief Executive of Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Dougie Scarfe OBE DL, said: “We’re thrilled to announce a new three-year partnership with Ellis Jones, which builds on a strong working relationship developed over the last seven years.
“As a registered charity, the BSO tours world-class live music throughout the Southwest of England each year and impacts thousands of people beyond the concert hall through a range of community-based events.
“In providing quality legal advice — and enabling the Orchestra to focus on what it does best — we’re delighted that Ellis Jones supports our mission of creating a happier, healthier, and fairer society through live music.”
Ellis Jones Partner and Joint Head of Family Deborah Leask has been on the BSO’s board of trustees for two and a half years.
