Charity law for Livery Companies & Guilds, sparks of light

Livery Companies & Guilds

Legal Advice for Livery Companies and Guilds

Those involved with guilds, Livery Companies and their associated charities understand the need to balance the often cutting edge nature of their work and the long tradition of which they are part. Our charities team has just this understanding and works with a number of such bodies to offer pragmatic legal solutions.

Our clients in this area range from charitable schools established and supported by 'Great Twelve' Livery Companies to grant making, educational and other charities of all sizes.

Legal Support from Experienced Charity Lawyers

Our City of London office is an ideal base from which our experienced team of charity lawyers can meet the needs of Livery Companies, companies without Livery, guilds and associated charities with the full spectrum of legal services.

Our experienced team of charity lawyers can provide specialist legal advice and support with:

  • governance matters including amendments to Royal Charters, articles of association and trust deeds
  • employment issues
  • strategic guidance and new ventures
  • managing relationships between charitable and other bodies with long historical connections

We also have particular expertise on advising clients with extensive endowment property in London and elsewhere.

Added Value

Members of our team are personally involved with the Livery and with similar bodies outside the City. We would be delighted to speak to you about your legal needs and are confident of being able to provide a high quality and excellent value service.

To find out more information please contact Con Alexander or call on 0117 314 5214.

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.
