Our Charities team act for a number of long established and well known benevolent, charitable and philanthropic organisations dealing with their administrative, constitutional and investment matters.
Our specialist lawyers adopt an advisory role to Trustees and can assist in the day to day management decisions of the Charity. We are responsible for preparing guidance notes to Trustees, including agenda and meeting packs, together with minutes, and actioning decisions of the Trustees. We are able to liaise with Property Managers and Investment Managers as well as deal with the filings at the Charity Commission.
We have experience of advising on Charity formations and different charitable structures as well as advice for Trustees. It is important to ensure that the charitable objectives of the organisation are met and that the Trustees do not open themselves up to personal liability. We can offer advice and assistance in relation to the constitutional documents of a Charity as well as dealing with distribution of monies on behalf of the Charity and even, in certain circumstances, the winding up of a Charity and ensuring that the correct Beneficiaries receive their entitlement.
