Our Experience

We are fully immersed in the charities sector – so much so that we’re involved in specialist professional groups, run events for charities to share their experience, including a very popular annual Trustees Week celebration.

We have an overview of the whole landscape of charity law. So, we can support good governance and manage risk, offering clear, detailed advice and solutions that go beyond the immediate issue at hand, on:

  • Conflicts of interest
  • Best practice
  • Payments to trustees
  • Mergers/restructuring
  • Registration/incorporations
  • Trustee training
  • Almshouses
  • Applications to the Charity Commission
  • Serious incident reporting.
