Charities & Social Enterprises

We understand the challenges and opportunities facing the charity and social enterprise sector, and are able to draw on the expertise of our specialist multi-disciplinary team to advise and support our clients throughout each stage of their development.

As a leading Charities & Social Enterprises team in Northern Ireland, we advise local, national and international clients on all aspects of charity law, with particular expertise in corporate & commercial, employment, funding, corporate governance, dispute resolution and real estate matters.

Our team is one of only two firms in Northern Ireland that is ranked by Chambers UK Legal Directory. In particular, we have a strong client following and recognition for our work among education, health & social care, heritage and benevolent fund organisations.

We provide a collaborative, cost effective and strategic service, advising clients on various issues that impact charities, and due to our significant expertise in the sector, we regularly provide specialist advice and training to the trustees, governors or directors of such organisations on compliance matters.

Our specialist team advise on routine and complex matters including the establishment and restructuring of some of the largest and high profile charitable organisations, and advising third sector organisations on drafting appropriate constitutions, rules and governance structures. This includes advising on the due-diligence process, the transfer of business and assets, and the responsibilities of the Trustees with regards to collaborations, mergers and de-mergers. We also assist charities operating within Northern Ireland in relation to their compliance with the requirements of the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland and the Charities Act (Northern Ireland) 2008.
