Charity legal services
"They are very intelligent in thinking around our organisation, in not taking off-the-peg ideas but looking for solutions with us, thinking outside the box to make things work for a slightly different organisation like ours"Chambers UK - A client's guide to UK solicitors
Charitable organisations are subject to a growing regulatory burden and are having to become ever more resourceful in raising funds.
The economic situation demands they look to manage risk, adopt a rigid corporate structure and are more commercial in their outlook and dealings with third parties.
Consequently, many charitable and not for profit organisations have an increasing awareness of the value of being able to call on a wide range of cost effective legal and commercial advice.
We help charitable clients safeguard the ethos and values of their organisation, so as not to lose sight of the purpose for which it was founded and remain empathetic to their needs, whilst providing holistic and pragmatic legal advice.
Our charity law team has an impressive client list of non-profit organisations and regional charities including the Epilepsy Society, Nordoff Robbins, The South Bucks Hospice, The British Skin Foundation and the Buckinghamshire Community Foundation and work closely with trustees and management teams to foster long-term relationships.
Our cross-practice team provides expert support for charities in relation to commercial contracts, constitutional reviews and issues, corporate governance, employment issues, IP rights, property, taxation and other financial and fundraising issues.
Our charity team is independently recommended for client service in the latest edition of The Legal 500.
