Charity mergers & restructuring

Strategic advice for charities on mergers & restructuring

Charities have always needed to change with the times. In response to long term trends, many charities have evolved from their beginnings to become almost unrecognisable from the charity established by their founders. Others have had to respond to more short term changes in the economy, in Government policy or in law and regulation.

Irrespective of what is driving change, we will provide you with experienced legal advisers to guide you to a successful outcome.

Quick Enquiry

Responding to change

Some charities deal with change as part of a long term strategic plan. Others need to respond quickly and decisively to sudden threats and opportunities to ensure that their business model remains sustainable not only for current beneficiaries but also for future generations, with the ability to generate surpluses for investment.

Joint working (from collaboration in sharing services through to a full merger) is often a key part of any response to change, whether in the short or longer term.

Guiding charities through strategic change

Because the initial stages of a major strategic change "from vision to announcement" may be crucial to its overall success, we recommend the involvement of our legal team from the outset.  We have a number of key guidance documents for all types of project that can be supplied immediately when we receive your instructions. We will meet with you to help you plan your route to your objectives and assess the critical path and key risks. That will allow us to assemble the team of specialists you will need to deal with issues such as property, employment, pensions etc, but we can also help you assemble a wider professional team with the experience you need.
