Lawyers specialising in the Charity, Not-for-Profit and Third Sector
We are legal experts and business advisors to the Charity sector. Our dedicated team believe that with the variety of compliance obligations impacting organisations in the ‘Third Sector’, it is crucial that business leaders have access to legal experts who truly understand the market, the challenges and the opportunities.
Situations arise that represent serious organisational, financial and legal risk. These risks can escalate as time passes. Often limited resources and voluntary supporters mean that professional legal advice is seen as a ‘luxury’ rather than seeking out at the earliest opportunity, where it can help shape solutions and overcome potential obstacles. Involving legal advisors early on can significantly reduce the time and cost involved in resolving difficult situations. By providing swift, pragmatic and cost-effective access to our Charity sector legal team, we can help you in managing risk effectively.
