Charities and Communities
Charities and social enterprises face the everyday challenges thrown at every organisation. Things break or go wrong. People disappoint. Relationships break down. Contracts are broken. Deadlines are missed. And then there are all the issues related to working with volunteers, funding, providing care and support…
Situations arise that represent serious organisational, financial and legal risk. Risk escalates as time passes. Often limited resources mean that professional legal advice is not sought soon enough. What was straightforward can become complex and, ultimately, more costly.
Involving us early on can significantly reduce the time and cost involved in resolving difficult situations. By providing swift, easy, cost-effective access to legal advice whatever the circumstances, we can help you manage risk effectively. We can provide you with the professional guidance and assistance you need – delivered with a friendly, understanding and realistic attitude.
From governing documents to protecting your intellectual property; negotiating contracts to drafting data protection policies; resolving employment disputes to training you trustees – we will work with you to achieve your aspirations.
The Charities and Communities team is lead by Sarah Humphrey. Her wide breadth of knowledge of the voluntary sector is complimented by a commercial edge and she is supported by other specialists from around the firm who are ideally placed to advise charities, social enterprises and voluntary and not-for-profit organisations on all legal issues they may face.
