Charities & Not for Profit

Our Charities Team comprises specialists in charity law and regulation.

Charities & Not for Profit

The team is multi-disciplinary, advising charity clients on matters relating to all aspects of their constitutional, governance and operational needs. Our team’s background and experience delivers advice that is not only technically excellent but, above all, practical. Many of our team also advise public bodies, commercial entities and high net worth individuals and, accordingly, are familiar with the contracting, funding, gift and legacy issues that charities commonly encounter.

We have a reputation for making complex issues seem simple, for delivering clear and concise advice, and for our cost-effective service. We also have a reputation for delivering excellent seminars on specialist topics and our core legal advice offering is complemented by our suite of in-house training for charities via our Shaping Excellence programme.

We offer comprehensive advice to all our charity and social enterprise clients including advice on:

Our approach

We are empathetic, understanding our clients’ objects and aims, rationales and restrictions, but are also commercial and practical. We mirror our clients’ needs to focus on outcomes and solutions, while taking into account client budgets, regulations and reputation. We recognise the impetus to “get things done” so that our clients can concentrate on their core purpose and mission.


The level of responsiveness of this team is outstanding and unsurpassed in my 18+ years of working in not-for-profit organisations.
