Many of our charity clients are NGOs operating across the globe in sectors ranging from international aid and development to human rights, faith, the environment, animal welfare, health and education. Our advisors are immersed in this sector and understand the challenges faced by charities working internationally.
We’re committed to supporting the wider sector. We’ve spearheaded legal reforms, from pioneering cases in the fields of charity investment and human rights, through to registering novel charitable purposes.
We helped rewrite the guidance on political campaigning. We even helped develop the 2016 Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Act. All of this means we can offer legal advice for charities that is steeped in experience and insights.
Why choose Bates Wells?
We have lawyers across the firm who understand the charity sector and who are on your wavelength. Our lawyers sit on the board of over 60 charities, so we also have the experience of seeing legal issues through the eyes of a trustee.
Legal advice for charities is at the core of who we are. Whatever your issue, we can help.
