Charities, Philanthropy and Not-for-profit

Expert guidance for charities, philanthropists and not-for-profit organisations

Philanthropy and charitable giving establish a lasting legacy, and a legal expert will help ensure your charitable objectives are fulfilled.

Our specialist solicitors offer exceptional advice and guidance on all aspects of tax-efficient giving as well as on the effective creation and management of charities and other not-for-profit organisations.

We can help individuals with a full range of matters related to philanthropy and tax efficient gifting, both during their lifetime and as charitable gifts in their will.

We also support many local and national charities and not-for-profit organisations of all kinds and sizes, whether it is with establishing and registering a new organisation with the relevant regulatory body, ongoing support on legal compliance or assistance in managing disputes and other challenges. This includes making sure that governance and framework procedures are effective and conform with the Charity Commission’s regulations and best practice.

Our service is both tailored and comprehensive thanks to our ability to offer flexible advice from other specialisms in our large full-service firm, such as assistance with property and employment matters, or in managing charity or trustee disputes. We offer a range of alternative forms of dispute resolution which avoid the time, cost and potential reputational damage of formal court proceedings. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, we have extensive experience in representation at court.

If you would like to find out more about our work in support of charities or philanthropic giving, please contact our specialist team in St Albans, Harpenden or Luton.
