Not for profits

We are one of only a few legal practices with a team dedicated to charities and not-for-profits.

For many years now we’ve been giving strategic advice on governance, structure, tax and compliance for charities, community housing and disability organisations, and educational institutions across the country. We also advise not–for-profits on opportunities and challenges they may be presented with.
