Charities and not for Profit Organisations
We provide expert advice to charities, whatever their size; large organisations or small local charities, steering and protecting them in this heavily regulated and niche area. Our experts are focused on achieving your objectives and goals.
We support to help not-for-profit organizations at every stage of their development, including navigating the myriad of legislative, regulatory and commercial challenges – and, we appreciate fully - quite often with limited resources. We are here to provide the support to these challenges.
Our particular experience is in supporting charities operating in the fields of healthcare, social welfare and the arts.
Our full range of services include:-
- Setting up charities.
- Incorporation of existing charities.
- Registration and liaison with Charities Commission.
- Charity governance.
- Advising on transactional issues.
- Reviewing and restructuring existing charities and trading subsidiaries.
- Winding up charities.
- Inheritance disputes in relation to charitable legacies.
Our process is to work with you to find and adopt the best legal structure to achieve our your objectives and goals. Prepare and submit the registration of the charity with the Charities Commission, and to advise upon governance, and the relationships between trustees, management, funders/donors and other stakeholders.
Our service is to ensure the smooth running of the charity once set up, and to provide continuing support including governance on fundraising, grants, donations and charity schemes.
We keep our clients up to date on key legal developments and issues, which include regular seminars and workshops for our clients. These provide an informal forum for discussions; allowing our clients to obtain expert advice from specialists within our firm and provide opportunities for our clients to meet colleagues in similar organisations for networking - peer support is invaluable.
Our aim is to provide practical solutions to problems based on our experience and knowledge.
