We act for a large number of charities of all sizes and also advise on the formation and registration of new charities.
Following the introduction of the Charities Act 2006, there are many issues that trustees have to consider, including those of public interest and limitation of liability. This means it has become increasingly important for them to have specialist legal guidance.
We have acted for a number of charities who have converted to limited companies. There is also a trend for smaller charities to merge with others, to become more cost effective, and we can advise on the implications of this and the processes involved.
We are also members of the Charity Law Association.
