Faith organisations need experienced legal advisers who understand the unique and complex framework within which they operate. Our clients look to us for commercially focussed legal advice and support to help them to run their organisations and implement new initiatives, whilst most effectively furthering their mission.
Many faith organisations operate as charities. We have significant experience in advising faith charities on a range of issues. We have a dedicated and nationally recognised team of lawyers who specialise in charity law, particularly as it applies to faith charities.
We can also provide expert legal advice to our faith organisation clients on all aspects of their operations. Our charity lawyers are knowledgeable and understand the interplay between secular law and the framework within, and the rules by, which your organisation operates. This enables us to provide practical and pragmatic advice, which is also sensitive to specific relationships and the ethos of your organisation's faith.
Our experience allows us to identify common issues and difficulties and allows our team of charities lawyers to share general advice of particular importance to faith organisations. This can range from the eligibility of trustees to reviewing governing documents and advising on governance issues.
We also run practical training seminars on a variety of specialist subjects.
The quality of service is strong, but always balanced with a practical viewpoint. Advice is therefore not excessively legalistic and can be implemented more easily than would be possible with a more technical approach.
