Charities and Not-for-Profit

With changing legislation and ever increasing regulation if you are operating within the charity, voluntary or not-for-profit sector there has never been a greater need for comprehensive legal advice.

Our charity lawyers are recommended by The Legal 500 and can help you navigate through the complexities of Charity Law to avoid the risk of personal liability and manage the reputation of your charity.

Our aim is to help you achieve your objectives with practical and cost effective advice.

Legal advice for charities, voluntary and not-for-profit organisations

Trustees are required to adopt an increasingly commercial approach to the management of their charity.  To demonstrate sufficient ‘duty of care’  trustees should carefully consider the need for legal advice whenever key decisions are required.

We offer a complete service from initial formation of the charity through to day to day governance issues.  We can also advise on strategic matters such as mergers and joint ventures.

The structure of your charity is particularly important and we will discuss the best solution for you. This will include analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of incorporation (in particular, the new Charitable Incorporated Organisation structure).  We will also ensure your charity complies with Charity Commission regulation and take the worry out of key decisions so that you can feel confident your charity is heading in the right direction.

If your charity is engaged in a dispute of any sort we can help resolve that and ensure that the trustees are able to protect the assets of the charity.
