Legal support for charities

Acting for over 70 charities, Nelsons’ Charity Solicitors have specialist and in-depth experience in advising and acting for a broad range of charitable organisations.

We adopt an advisory role to Trustees and senior managers in their strategic planning of the organisation and aim to provide a practical and seamless service.

Our Charity Solicitors provide advice on:

  • The formation of new charitable organisations and change of existing organisations to the new form of charitable incorporation
  • Constitutional and governance affairs
  • Trustee dealt with disciplinary and grievance procedures
  • Funding and commercial arrangements
  • Property matters
  • Restructuring, mergers and acquisitions
  • Dispute resolution including legacy disputes
  • The setting up and administration of charitable trusts
  • Legal services and day to day management for Almshouses.

We are recommended by the independently researched Legal 500 in this area of work.

  • "Nelsons Solicitors Limited’s ‘outstanding’ team has ‘excellent’ knowledge and counts the National Space Centre and the Congregational Federation among its clients. The group advises charities on a wide range of matters, including issues related to contentious probate, corporate transactions and commercial property."
