Legal advice for charities

We are on your wavelength.

Our strength isn’t only in the full range of services we offer to charities. It’s in the fact our whole firm understands what charities need.

Between us, we’ve seen and solved most legal problems a charity could face. We suspect it’s why we’re the firm of choice for thousands of charities across the UK. So whether you’re fundraising or finding office space, we can help.

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.

How we help

We have charity lawyers on your wavelength right across the firm, many of them charity trustees themselves.

Our employment lawyers have helped to define the legal position of volunteers. Our real estate lawyers are as adept with trusts for ancient buildings as they are with modern office leases. Our finance team leads on social investment. Our public law team will fight your corner in a judicial review or campaign for change.

We understand the sensitivities and pressures of reputation management when you’re under scrutiny. Our dispute resolution team knows how to handle your issues sensitively. And if it comes to a complicated regulatory investigation, we have the experience to steer you through. 

Legal advice for charities is at the core of who we are. Whatever your issue, our charity solicitors can help.
