I’m an Associate in the Charity & Social Enterprise team. I advise organisations large and small on charity law, company law and commercial matters.
So I can help you to set up and register your organisation, write or amend your organisation’s constitution, and advise you on contracts and grant arrangements. I also advise on regulation in this area, especially around fundraising.
This has helped both the national charity and the local member organisations to operate more efficiently. The work included: drafting the charity’s new articles of association, the local charities’ new constitutions, the incorporation transfer agreement and the membership agreements, and advising the national charity through the whole process.
I drafted and updated fundraising contracts, including contracts with professional fundraisers, commercial participators, challenge event organisers and other suppliers. I also worked with their creative team to check that all new fundraising materials complied with charity law and fundraising regulations.
I’ve also advised on complying with Charity Commission guidance about working overseas.
