Legal Services for Charities

We offer legal services for charities and currently advise more than 200 charities: ranging from small community organisations to large national ventures.

We work for many community regeneration organisations and are involved with charities utilising community-owned wind farms and hydro regeneration projects.

Our extensive experience in this area means we can offer considerable assistance to charitable organisations including:

  • Banking/grant funding
  • Complying with existing and forthcoming legislation
  • Commercial property
  • Governance
  • Litigation
  • Partnership working
  • Setting up a charity (ensuring that their aims and objectives meet the charity and public benefit test as administered by the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator)
  • Setting up subsidiaries
  • Trading queries
  • Trust law
