We offer high level charity law advice, including compatibility between new initiatives and charitable objects and powers, joint ventures with other charitable institutions and related tax advice. Our work on the fundraising and development side includes advice on legacies and professional fundraiser and commercial participation agreements. 

That work is carried out by an industry-recognised team of charity and governance experts, with a number of our specialists sitting on sector advisory boards and regularly speaking at events. We also provide a range of seminars and training sessions, sharing our knowledge and experience so that you can run your organisation more efficiently.

Within the areas of charity, education, museums and other cultural institutions - long-standing specialisms of our firm - we have unrivalled experience in dealing with complex charity constitutions and we understand the legislative frameworks within which these and other public institutions must operate.
