Charities and other not-for-profit organisations have increasingly sophisticated needs that require specialist and tailored advice. Our cross-departmental charities team have considerable experience in advising a wide range of charities and other organisations, including schools, care organisations, arts charities, local authorities and affordable housing providers, on all aspects of their charitable business and activities, providing a complete service in a diverse sector.
A specialised governance team deal with the formation and restructuring of charities and their associated entities including trading subsidiaries, as well as specialist charity law advice, and have close contacts with various regulators including the Charity Commission and the Housing Corporation.
The firm's property and construction teams have a wide range of experience in dealing with all types of charities and their specific property and development needs, while the care group's vast experience in all issues relating to the regulation of care provision in the UK allows them to provide a complete service to such charities.
A charity relies on an often considerable workforce to enable it to carry out its charitable objects - our employment team are used to dealing with charity staff related issues such as volunteers, and our pensions team can provide considerable support in an increasingly regulated and complicated area.
