Our specialist charity and not-for-profit lawyers work closely with our private client team to help our clients and their families make a real difference to the causes and communities they care about.

Choosing a project or charity to support is likely to take time and will require careful consideration of the legal and financial implications. We can help by finding the most appropriate way of achieving your goals – whether it involves supporting existing charities, establishing new charitable organisations or by adopting a policy of ‘socially responsible investment'.

It’s not only important to you as the philanthropist but also to the organisation receiving the donation, that the arrangements are structured in the most tax efficient way. Our experience of working in this sector means that we genuinely understand the issues affecting both parties – within UK and international jurisdictions.

We can help you with:

  • Charitable foundations and philanthropic structures
  • Governance arrangements
  • Legacies and contentious probate
  • Tax planning through Companies and Trusts
  • Tax efficient funding arrangements
