A trusted advisor

We recognise that, more than ever right now, charities need to boost money coming in and keep a close eye on the amounts going out.

A partnership with a law firm should help you do more for less, give you cost certainty, and upskill and enable your own teams to do more of what you currently use external advisers for.

Our specialist areas


As a charity, you rely on your legacy team to maintain a steady flow of vital funding into your organisation.

With a huge variety of challenges to address such as legacy disputes, property issues, administering estates or governance and regulation issues, insulating against complicating factors like unpredictable workloads or larger concerns like strategic and structural challenges is crucial.

Forming a partnership with trusted advisors who specialize in advising charities on legacy income can help mitigate against those challenges. With experts in place who work to understand your unique circumstances, you are able to gain a clear picture of what’s best for you and meet challenges that arise in an efficient and proactive manner.
