When forming a charity, you need to be aware of all the rules and regulations you’ll be bound by. Our commercial solicitors can help you get your charity set up and registered with the Charity Commission, but we can also ensure you stay compliant, helping with matters surrounding the day-to-day running of your charity or advise on reconstruction if your organisation grows past its initial mission.
Our commercial solicitors have worked with all kinds of charities across the country, and bring their keen financial sense to the table, ensuring that your charity is set up as efficiently as possible so you can focus on raising vital funds for those who need it most.
We can help with a wide range of issues in a variety of areas, including constitutional concerns such as preparation of trust deeds, constitutions and articles of association. We can also assist with regulatory matters, and keep you informed of any new Charity Commission requirements. Our commercial lawyers can also provide advice on contracts and commercial issues relating to your charity’s everyday business.
We act for charities of all sizes, from small, local charities to national ones in numerous different sectors. Recently, we’ve helped charities to set up new charitable trusts, and advised their trading subsidiaries on additional fundraising and revenue protection to support a development programme.
We often support our clients when the Charity Commission gets involved, and recently supported a client through an extensive investigation, reviewing their structure and corporate governance, including financial contracts and decision-making processes.
