Charity Disputes

Advising a number of long established regional and national charities, including some of the largest UK animal-focused charities puts us in the heart of your world.

 We can review constitutional documents and websites to ensure they are up-to-date and incorporate any necessary changes.

Other key areas that we advise on include:

Advice on public benefit
Changes introduced by the Charities Act 2011
Charity Commission enquiries/investigations
Charity land law issues, including compliance with Part 7 of the Charities Act 2011
Due diligence investigatory work (including reports for trustees)
General disputes
Issues surrounding contentious and non-contentious legacies
We ensure that we always act in a way that is consistent with each Charity’s values and reputation. The ‘legal’ answer is only one of a multitude of options available to you and we know you need us to identify, analyse and minimise risk by advising on the best route at the earliest possible stage, we won’t sit on the fence when it comes to advice. We understand the reputational risks felt by our charity clients and the risks of making an ‘incorrect’ decision.
