Successful charities need experienced charity lawyers who understand the complex interplay of charity law, regulation and best practice.
Charities tell us that they want a law firm that provides pragmatic and commercially focused legal support for their senior management teams and trustees to help them run thriving organisations that deliver the best outcomes for their beneficiaries. Our experienced team of charity lawyers are always on hand to give practical solutions to problems and to provide charities with the confidence to react positively to opportunities.
We are trusted legal advisers and friends to a great many charity trustees and senior managers who rely on our proactive legal advice, our charity law expertise and our 24/7 support. Every client relationship is managed by a partner who commits to knowing your charity's unique culture and is supported by a team of specialist charity lawyers who all understand your perspective and have a genuine passion for charities and what they do.
Our clients include charities working in all areas of the sector, from smaller charities working in local communities through to much larger organisations working nationally and internationally. This includes charity startups, independent schools, social enterprises, social care charities and faith based charities.
We are nationally recognised for the work we do with charities by the leading legal directories. In 2019, Charity Finance ranked us as a leading legal adviser to the Top 350 charities, with VWV holding its third position for another year.
Our fixed price tailored products and services give you cost effective and affordable legal solutions to areas of custom and practice that are common throughout the sector. Experience of acting for a wide range of charities enables us to identify common issues and means that we will never need to reinvent the wheel for you.
OnStream brings together a collection of free resources and know-how for charities in one place, designed to be your first port of call for all charity related queries.
We think ahead for charities and keep them up to date with the latest charity law and best practice through our Charities Law Brief and by running practical training seminars.
All of our charity lawyers are committed to and passionate about the sector. We write our leading publication 'Charity Governance' (published by Jordans) and contribute to Jordans' Charities Administration Service. Many of our team are active charity trustees who understand the trustees' perspective and their charities' problems and opportunities. We believe that this makes them better lawyers and better advisers to the charities we work with.
