Because we have been advising charities and not for profit organisations, schools and other education providers for many decades, we have an in-depth and hands-on understanding of the challenges that you face and the sector in which your organisation operates.
Members of our Charity Law & Education team regularly attend or speak at sector focused events. Most recently these have included a national accountancy firm’s charities conference, the Telegraph Festival of Education, the Berkshire Community Foundation’s annual charity symposium and our own ‘sell out’ charity law seminar, which welcomed speakers including the Chief Executive of the Epilepsy Society and the Head of Corporate Partnerships at Samaritans.
Supported by the expertise in our other teams, we provide a comprehensive range of legal services including in relation to the structure of your organisation (and changing it), collaborative working and mergers, constitutional and governance issues, trustee duties and training, regulatory matters, fundraising, online trading, commercial contacts and agreements, tendering and procurement, data protection, employment law, property and planning, legacy issues and other disputes.
Our specialist expertise and expertise is acknowledged in The Legal 500 and has previously been nationally recognised.
As a firm we are proud to have donated over £50,000 to local charities in recent years, while continuing to support a wide range of local and national causes, including helping to raise more than £1.5 million for Cancer Research UK.
