Wilson Browne has many years’ experience of working in this field, and our lawyers act as clerks for several charities, some of which manage multi-million pound funds.
Our experienced team can advise on any legal problems arising in relation to the formation of charities as well as dealing with amending governing documents; this is a legal document that represents the way in which your charity will operate, it should contain information regarding the purpose of the charity and how the charity goes about achieving its purposes. We can also help with the interpretation of governing documents if necessary. If trustee’s details need changing, including making sure that these details are up to date at the Land Registry if there is property involved; this is something we can help with too.
Our Commercial Property team can assist with any property matters your charity might have, including sales and purchases and grants and acquisitions of leases of premises.
We have dealt with property matters for an array of charities over the years so we have built up a wealth of experience.
As well as the formation we can assist in the on going running of the charity too. We can run the day to day administration for the charity including attending trustee meetings, looking after the accounts, invoices and grant application forms which are all things we do for a number of charities currently. Our Charity team work closely with Accountants, supplying all the relevant information to enable the necessary accounts to be prepared if required.
We will provide legal advice on any aspect including any policies required such as risk management or complaints policies.
Our priority is to ensure that clients and trustees feel comfortable and confident with the advice and help that we provide.
