Our team of Charity Lawyers is recommended by The Legal 500. We are committed to ensuring that our clients remain abreast of changes in legislation and case law in this rapidly developing field. We are a member of the Charity Law Association and many of our lawyers sit, in a personal capacity, as Trustees and officers in Charitable and not-for-profit [NfP] organisations. They offer hands-on experience regarding the practical implications of the Charities Act and the increasingly commercial environment within which Charities operate. We have frequent contact with the Charity Commission offices and have an excellent working relationship with them. For further information on Charity Law and our services for Charities, contact Aaron Spencer or any member of our Charity Law team.
We are able to tailor Trustee training programmes to the needs of your Charity to ensure all concerned with the organisation are aware of their responsibilities in the context of legal, financial and practical issues. We can design Trustee information packs and offer seminars on changes to the law – all helping to ensure Trustees are best placed to fulfil their functions to the overall benefit of the Charity. We also seek to keep our clients updated through regular newsletters and website articles.
As a specialist law firm, we are able to offer clients of our Charity Law services the full use of our resources, thus enabling them to receive a breadth of advice across a number of areas of law - ensuring the appropriate expertise is available at all times. Our lawyers have expertise ranging from Corporate and Commercial law, Litigation and Dispute Resolution, to Tax, Trust and Probate law.
