SECTOR: Charity


We can assist in advising charitable or not for profit organisations as to the appropriate structure for them. Like any other business, it is good practice for existing charities to review the capacity in which they are trading from time to time. We can advise on the following structures:

  • Sole Traders
  • Unincorporated Partnerships
  • Limited Liability Partnerships
  • Limited Companies

Samuel Phillips takes the time to understand our clients businesses, and the issues facing them, in order to provide a expert legal solutions, rather than simply a standard black letter legal response.  We also recognise that charities, like all businesses, have finite resources and, to this end, we endeavor to provide real value for money.

The business team has a depth of experience dealing with all company structures. We understand the commercial pressures you are under, and try to tailor our fees and response accordingly.

  • Business Structure
  • Partnership agreements
  • Shareholder agreements
  • Company Formation

Our involvement with charities is not simply limited to legal advice.  We actively support and carry out fundraising activities for the benefit of local charities, including two which have been chosen by a poll of our staff.

If you represent a charity then and need assistance with any legal matter then we’d love to hear from you.
