Amplifying your social impact

We are the leading experts in helping purposeful businesses to deliver positive change through their philanthropic and investment strategy.

If you’re examining how your funds can work harder for your community or wider society and the environment, we have the expertise to help. We can support you on developing an impact investment strategy, exploring community investment, or engaging in a wider divestment initiative to support your climate goals. We can also help you to structure support in-kind programmes and advise on their delivery.

How we help

If you’re focusing on charitable giving, you can rely on our experience as the UK’s leading law firm for charities to guide you on the most impactful approach. You may be partnering with a charity as part of your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme, or considering making a one-off gift or an ongoing employee giving or volunteering programme. You may be exploring structured options, like a donor-advised fund or a corporate foundation. We’ll help you to implement the right option for you.

  • We advise on the right vehicle for your corporate philanthropy. We’ve set up countless donor-advised funds and corporate foundations, including for organisations such as Asda, Vodafone, Goldman Sachs, Diageo, Nike and Estée Lauder – but also for many B Corps and purposeful SMEs.
  • We bring sector-leading social and impact investment expertise. Our experts don’t just advise on the law in this field – we’ve been key voices in the shaping of policy for three decades. We made the argument for the creation of the statutory social investment power for charities, worked with Government on the design of social investment tax relief, and structured key institutions such as Big Society Capital, Social Finance and Charity Bank.
