Charity Solicitors

Guiding you through the giving process

Ensure your chosen charity beneficiaries reap the rewards of your hard work

The charity sector faces many pressures and has increasingly come under spotlight in recent times. With fierce competition from rivals, a tougher fundraising environment and the need to improve the transparency of charitable spend, more charities are looking for donations from individuals instead. Charity law covers the rules, regulations and tax implications of establishing and operating charities and not-for-profit organisations. Sitting within the private client team, our charity lawyers focus primarily on those who donate to charities, ensuring that both the donor and the charity itself are able to benefit from the donation as much as possible.

Our charity solicitors can guide you through the process of giving back to a cause you believe in, ensuring that you’re aware of the various tax benefits of donating to a charity in the UK.

Wherever you are on your journey, our legal advisors can help. Call us today on 0330 024 0333 or use the button below to complete our contact form.
