A team committed to working with charities in a cost effective and pragmatic way


Our Charities team is committed to working with charities in a cost effective and pragmatic way. Our starting point is always to understand your requirements and your aspiration before we start to formulate approaches to help achieve your goals.

Our client base is diverse from individuals and groups wanting to set up charities, to trustees of existing charities, social enterprise organisations, or friendly societies who may need advice on particular issues.

The Charity team is drawn from across the firm and together we have considerable experience of working with charities, on all aspects of charity regulation and administration. This includes advice in relation to governance, legacy, funding, compliance, property, planning, employment, commercial and dispute resolution matters.

We can help you with organisational reviews to ensure that your charitable organisation is structured and working optimally to helping you negotiate mergers and collaborative working arrangements with partners. We can also offer in-house accountancy, company secretarial and trust administration services.

Our Charity team is ranked by The Legal 500, one of the foremost independent guides to the legal profession. The team is described as ‘knowledgeable and prompt’ and the strength of our ranking is testament to our ability to provide expert legal advice to charities.
