Kent Good Governance Charity Forum
Charities are vital in our community and with specific regulations in this sector it’s crucial that not-for-profit organisations have access to reliable, expert legal advice to navigate complex legislation and maintain a compliant, effective operation at all times.
Brachers is proud of the specialist expertise we have built in the charity sector. We have a team of experts able to advise on all areas of law including property, human resources, corporate and commercial, regulatory and litigation. Our expertise comes from our work with a diverse client base; 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.
Our approach is to work with charities in a cost effective and pragmatic way. We are competitive on price, but clients stay with us for the quality of our advice, our commercial approach and the speed of our response.
How we can help
Brachers’ dedicated Charities Team consists of specialist lawyers focused on the charity sector which allows for a true partnership with clients. The team brings efficiency, pragmatism and years of experience to deliver on your challenges and put your organisation’s needs first. We have considerable knowledge in all aspects of charity regulation and administration – understanding the demands facing both individuals and groups in the sector.
We practice what we preach via our regular work with local and national charities. Through the Brachers Charitable Trust we are able to support numerous not-for-profit organisations across the county as well as further afield allowing us to see the impact charitable organisations are having away from our legal desks. Many of our lawyers do volunteer work including being governors of Five Acre Wood School, trustees of Porchlight, Age UK, Spadeworks and many others, giving us a personal understanding of the challenges you and your organisation can face.
Our specialist lawyers can advise on:
- mergers and collaborative arrangements
- setting up a charity
- 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.
