If you’re running a charity, you’ll know your constitution is scrutinised closely, and that you need to be aware of the legal complexities of conducting a charitable business.
Registered charities are concerned increasingly with general commercial matters, such as contract and governance law, and we can help you navigate the wider scope of law this entails. Wortley Byers Law can help with all charities’ legal needs, and has acted for a several notable charities and independent schools.
For example, we can advise you on governance, charity structures, registering with the Charity Commission, trading, trustee issues, contracts, mergers and partnering ventures.
We also advise on employment, property and dispute resolution for charities, pulling in expertise from our other departments. Our property team, for example, is familiar with the requirements of trust law and our litigation team knows when restrictions apply to charity litigation.
