Our charity clients work for their money and many are complex commercial businesses operating in a highly regulated and closely scrutinized environment. We also work with local authorities, helping them to identify the vital services that charities can provide, negotiate contracts and manage successful relationships.

Our role is to help charities promote their charitable purposes, be more commercial and fulfill their promises and obligations. Providing governance advice and helping to ensure compliance with charity law and regulatory requirements is the cornerstone of our work. We advise on a full range of governance issues as well as provide broader support such as through trustee training. We often advise boards at a strategic level on wider issues like group structuring, asset optimisation and staffing strategy, and bring wider skills to projects such as act as the ability to act project manager on restructuring projects.

We also offer much more to our clients by providing expert skills in other specialist areas. We are a full service law firm and charities can benefit from specialist skills in areas including, for example, pensions, land acquisitions and financing.
