We exist ‘to improve lives, communities and society’. Our understanding of, and commitment to, the voluntary sector underpins the ethos of the whole firm, not just a department or team. This depth of understanding helps us find the most effective way to help charities achieve their aims.
We have worked with charities and other not-for-profit bodies since 1973, and we are independently ranked in the top five national law firms for such work. We are particularly well known for our longstanding support to faith-based charities; indeed the firm was founded because of the Christian commitment of the original partners. We work with churches and faith-based groups of all kinds and sizes to help them achieve their mission–whether that is to share their faith or transform society.
Our long-term commitment to our other chosen sectors, including health and social care, social housing and social business, means we are regularly involved in large and critically important projects involving charities in those sectors and the wider third-sector. At the same time we provide reliable, cost-effective support to many smaller charities. Working in this way can be challenging but it is a privilege to work alongside charities and people who share our purpose and values - and help them to improve lives.
We help charities, and those who support them, overcome the obstacles to achieving their aims, whether that involves providing a cost-effective response to day-to-day legal issues or helping to manage a complex project that is critical to the future of the charity. We can help with most of the issues that a charity is likely to encounter and where we cannot help ourselves we usually know someone who can.
