Farrers’ property expertise coupled with their extensive charity knowledge made them an obvious choice of firm for this project, ensuring that WWF has concluded an advantageous, yet sensible and legally compliant deal which will enable WWF to realise its vision of a headquarters building that truly illustrates its work and interacts with the public.

Advising one of the UK’s leading charities on its headquarters project.

We are advising WWF-UK on the acquisition and development of a new site for the charity’s national headquarters. WWF-UK is seeking to develop a central Woking site to create a landmark building to reflect its mission and profile. We have advised on commercial property/development matters, charity governance and planning and construction/procurement issues.

Our experience in handling major capital projects for charity clients has proved invaluable. Requiring a one-firm approach, the property team worked closely with charity, tax, planning and construction colleagues to handle all aspects of this key development.
