We are committed to helping you meet the challenges of being a modern charity by providing an excellent range of Charity Law services.

Our team is nationally recognised as a leading charity lawyers. The strength and depth of our Charity Law team enables us to offer the highest quality service to clients, complemented by a real commitment to relationship-based working. Our aim is to provide practical solutions to problems based on our in-depth knowledge and experience. We understand that ‘charities mean businesses and we bring that approach to our advice.

Charity and voluntary sector work is at the heart of our practice. We act for many voluntary organisations including some of the country’s largest charities with activities
ranging across a broad spectrum including:

  • Education
  • Environment
  • Grant-making
  • Medical
  • Recreation and sports
  • Regeneration
  • Religion
  • Disaster Relief
  • Science and research
  • Human Rights

 

With a national client base across a range of voluntary sector organisations, the Charity Law team can provide advice on:

  • Charity Commission;
  • trustee(s);
  • fund-raising;
  • Funding Agreements;
  • trading;
  • duties and responsibilities;
  • governing documentation;
  • group structures;
  • joint projects;
  • amalgamations;
  • mergers.

As Charity Law solicitors we take a flexible approach to your needs and tailor our

services accordingly. Some clients choose to use us to address a wide variety of
issues, almost like in-house lawyers. We provide them with advice on matters as
diverse as negotiating with the Charity Commission to obtain consent to remunerate
a trustee, protecting a charity logo, or entering into a fund-raising agreement with a
commercial entity.

Other charities may employ in-house legal staff and therefore only call on our services
on an ad hoc basis. In these cases we happily provide advice and support in relation to
special projects, such as a review of governing documentation to reflect changes in law
and best practice, or making arrangements for a joint project with another charity.
