Charity & Not-for-Profit Organisations


Our specialist lawyers, some of whom are also members of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) are able to provide a highly efficient and comprehensive service using skills from across the range of the firm’s practice areas.  

Many of our lawyers are themselves charity trustees, giving them insight into the concerns, governance and aspirations of charities and the needs of the local community. We have particular experience of charities operating in the fields of education, young people, drug and prison rehabilitation, religious affairs and the elderly. 

Work encompasses

  • Not-for-profit organisations at every stage of their development.
  • Philanthropy & charitable giving to enable clients to contribute as tax efficiently as possible in their own lifetime and beyond, whether by supporting existing charities or by establishing their own charitable trust
  • On-going advice in relation to governance, grant making and other legal issues
