Charities

 

We have experience of both setting up new charities and acting for existing charities on a variety of aspects including:

 

  • Incorporation, regulation and governance
  • Charity Commission registration
  • Charity administration and regulatory issues
  • Charity proceedings and application to be joined as a party to proceedings
  • Trustees’ powers and duties
  • Fundraising agreements, sponsorship, events and commercial participator contracts
  • Mergers and re-structuring
  • Advice relating to property, employment, defamation and fraud issues

 

Many of our solicitors are members of charitable boards and so understand the intricacies of running a successful not for profit organisation.
