Our charity solicitors give practical advice on the full spectrum of charity and commercial law - from drafting commercial contracts, to advising on grants, to handling the most complex, high profile and sensitive cases.
But we do a lot more than advise on the usual issues. We offer extensive support to boards looking to improve their governance or make tough decisions. We can help you with difficult questions around regulation and compliance.
When it comes to collaborative working and mergers, our charity lawyers understand the process, legal issues and potential obstacles to consider.
Whatever your need, we've helped countless charities in similar situations before. Get in touch to find out how we can help you.
