As a client of ours, you will benefit from the experience not just of our charity law experts, but also from their colleagues in every area of our practice, as we draw together recognised specialists to provide you with clear, practical and cost-effective solutions to your legal requirements.

With our experience and knowledge of the sector, we are regularly invited to sit on Government advisory panels and sector working parties which formulate and review policy and the changing legal environment of charity and not-for-profit law. As a result, we are able to advise you not only on the current legislative framework, but how the changing regulatory outlook may influence your future activities.

We also take great care to maintain close working links with the Charity Commission, other regulators, the Privy Council and key Government departments. Whether you are establishing a new charity or seeking guidance, consent or a ruling on a specific point we can quickly indicate the likely outcome, reduce the amount of time taken and work towards achieving your desired outcome.

As a client of ours, you will have a partner as your main contact, who will be accessible at all times to deal with your needs directly. When the work demands it he or she will put together a team of experts from across the firm, giving you the complete package of legal help, able to quickly come together to produce a clear and cost-effective solution to any aspect of charity law.

Advising charities, social enterprises and not-for-profit organisations is one of the strongest areas of our practice, and we are recognised as one of the top charity and not-for-profit firms in the country. This hard-earned reputation comes from years of experience acting for some of the biggest charities in the UK advising on their most complex legal issues.
