Charities and Social Enterprises Group

« back

Our Charities and Social Enterprises Group, headed by Duncan Milwain, comprises specialist lawyers from across the firm who have developed a particular expertise in dealing with charities, social enterprises and other Third Sector organisations. So we can help with whatever specialist support and advice you may need.

We understand the law and maintain close working relationships with the Charity Commission, regulators and key government departments. As a result, you won’t pay for advisors to spend time acquainting themselves with the relevant areas of the law.

We currently act for over 100 charities and not-for-profit organisations, all of which benefit from having their matters handled by experienced advisors who blend a commercial outlook with a pragmatic approach to solving client needs. Our lawyers pride themselves on their accessibility and approachability, and will strive to work closely with you at all times.

Many of our lawyers sit on the boards of large regional charities or have been retained on the management committees of local sports or arts organisations, giving them first-hand experience of the types of issues you may face.

We’re also acutely aware of the financial and legal constraints under which you operate, as well as the commercial challenges you face in the highly competitive not-for-profit marketplace. That’s why we’ve invested heavily in our team to ensure you can call on a wide range of expertise, which we can then tailor to meet your particular requirements. As a result, we’re able to offer you extremely competitive fee levels without sacrificing the quality of either the service or the expertise you receive.
