Lanyon Bowdler provides advice and support to a number of organisations in the charitable sector. As a firm, we have also formed long lasting ties with charities in Shropshire and Herefordshire as a result of our involvement in a variety of community projects.
The laws applicable to charities, charitable companies and social enterprise are constantly changing. Organisations, volunteers, employees and trustees face a number of challenges in seeking to comply with regulatory and legal requirements, including new legislation introduced by the Charities Act 2006.
At Lanyon Bowdler we understand that at the same time as trying to keep up with changes in the law, charitable organisations are keen to compete for resources, obtain funding and develop their activities by structuring themselves as effectively as possible.
Our team of corporate and commercial solicitors provide practical advice and assistance to unincorporated and incorporated organisations as well as to the people that run them.
We can assist with:

For example, engaging trading subsidiaries, commercial agreements, funding and grant arrangements.
