Our whole firm understands what charities need. We share user-friendly guides and tips to help you achieve your charity’s goals.

Charity & not for profit products and solutions

Our charity products and solutions focus on the legal, regulatory, and best practice requirements for charities to ensure your charity can focus on reaching the communities you serve. We also provide your trustees with the skills needed to feel confident in their duties and responsibilities and have a good overview of the legal and regulatory requirements of a charity and what good governance looks like in practice. Our lawyers can also provide support at the core of your charity via training on GDPR, the role of the CEO, trading subsidiaries, fundraising and more.


Charity & not for profit focused events

Our online events are both engaging and useful. Lawyers from across our firm provide practical commentary on developments affecting the sector, providing you with tips to add extra value to your role.

Spotlight, the annual Bates Wells charity conference, draws together leading names from across the sector to put together an educational and challenging agenda, providing a fantastic opportunity to enjoy some healthy debate and legal updates.
