Charities are under increasing pressure to behave in a more commercial way.
If you’re running a charity, you’re dealing with everything a business must contend with, in a rapidly changing regulatory and legislative environment. Our role is to remove the obstacles in your path, so you are able to help your beneficiaries in the best way you can.
Charitable aims and commercial outlook
Altruism is getting harder by the day. Having to think more commercially means addressing the challenges of funding and fundraising, trading, governance, staffing and property, not to mention other issues such as data protection and pension provision. Overall, it makes sense to work with a law firm with expertise across a wide range of disciplines, not just charity law.
Why work with us?
We offer technical expertise across all the legal disciplines a charity might need.
We form long-term partnerships with our clients, who include a wide variety of charities and not-for-profit organisations. We’ve developed a deep affinity for the sector, with its rewards and its pitfalls, its personalities and politics. This allows us to look at several sides of an issue, and to help you manage complex relationships.
