Professional and Trade Bodies

We blend practical solutions and commercial advice - helping you balance dedication to public interest, your industry and your members.

When you lead a professional or self-regulatory body, trade association or membership organisation, dedication to public interest and your industry is paramount. But so are your responsibilities to your members. We’ll help you get that balance right.

We’ll train your teams on key legal issues. We’ll also give practical, commercial advice whenever you need it.

How we help

We’ll advise you on establishing a new body or introducing a structural or governance change. If something’s gone wrong, we’ll help with everything from early investigations to full disciplinary hearings.

We’ll advise on data privacy and GDPR. We’ll protect your IP and trademarks. If competition law is an issue, we’ll give you clear and practical advice. If you’re relocating, we’ll handle real estate transactions.

And if you’re in a dispute, we’ll help you resolve it swiftly and smoothly.We work with institutes, Royal Charter and Royal College bodies, trade associations and membership organisations.

We advise clients on the best ways of working with charities (we’re a leading legal adviser to not-for-profits and public authorities in the UK). And we help clients in highly regulated sectors to stay compliant while getting the job done.
