Our Charity Law Expertise

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, from charity startups to independent schools, and from social care to faith based charities, to social enterprise.

We are nationally recognised for the work we do with charities by the leading legal directories. In 2018, Charity Finance ranked us as leading legal adviser to the Top 350 charities, with VWV holding its third position for another year.

Affordable Legal Solutions

Our experience of acting for a wide range of charities enables us to identify common issues and difficulties and means that we will never reinvent the wheel for you. 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.

Added Value

We think ahead for charities and keep them up to date with the latest law and best practice through our Charities Law Brief and by running practical training seminars.

We publish an annual compilation of articles in our Trends in the Charity Sector publication, in which you can find out about the key trends in the charity sector including those in employment, property and governance, and what changes you should be aware of.

All of the members of our team 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.

For more information regarding our charity law expertise and to discuss how our law firm can help you, please contact Con Alexander on 0117 314 5214 or make an enquiry below.

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.
