Charities & Social Enterprise Solicitors

As part of one of the leading law firms in the North West, providing expert legal advice to charities and social enterprises has always been a core area of work for Slater Heelis.

Our Charities and Social Enterprise team draw on their wide-ranging experience to deliver practical solutions for any legal challenge you may be facing.

We work closely with organisations at all stages of their development, which gives us an in-depth understanding of the environment in which charities and social enterprises operate. Our client base includes guarantee companies, unincorporated trusts, community interest companies and many other forms of social enterprise, such as community benefit societies and co-operatives.

For businesses operating in the third sector, it has never been more essential to scope out opportunities and risks from a judicious legal perspective before committing to any transaction. We are here to make sure you make informed legal decisions at every possible turn.

From initial registrations and amending constitutions, to corporate governance, funding arrangements and commercial contracts, our charity law experts ensure that your business maintains robust legal policies and meets statutory regulations at all times.

We also have particular expertise in relation to charities operating in the health and social care and education sectors.

Understanding your aspirations and concerns

In addition to their sector legal experience, several of our Charities & Social Enterprise team are themselves charity trustees.

Katharine Mellor, is a long-standing trustee of the Brockbank Foundation. Nicky Collins is a trustee and director of Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.

This insight into the practical legal challenges faced by charities and not-for-profit organisations puts Slater Heelis ahead of many of our competitors. We build strong relationships with founders, directors and key stakeholders to ensure any legal advice we provide is tailored to suit your commercial objectives.
