Charity & Philanthropy

We understand the urge to give back. As a firm, we commit every year to making a valuable contribution to the communities around us and we operate a generous social responsibility programme that benefits many worthwhile UK charities. 

If you’re looking to make charitable gifts or legacy donations, we can help to ensure that these reflect your personal and professional values.

We’re also able to assist on the creation and rearranging of charitable trusts on your behalf.

Our charity law team has many years of experience in:

  • Acting as trustees of grant-making charities
  • Advising charities on appropriate corporate structures
  • Investments and trading
  • Protecting charity assets
  • Managing conflicts of interest and financial difficulties
  • Asset transfers, mergers and dissolution.

We can also guide the charity trustees on matters concerning governance and trustee duties.

We’re also on hand to assist with inquiries by the Charity Commission over matters such as bequests and maladministration issues.
