Charities and Social Enterprise
Hempsons have an established charities and social enterprise practice and reputation with a dedicated national team across the firm’s four offices in London, Manchester, Harrogate and Newcastle.  As a top 10 specialist legal advisor to the UK’s top charities, our team has worked with this sector for many years and advises on all aspects from start up options and legal structures, to expansion and collaborations.  Our aim is always to assist our clients to maximise their impact and become more efficient.

Our broad expertise in advising charities and social enterprises enables us to provide pragmatic and proactive advice to the sector as it faces challenging times and recognises the need to become more innovative and entrepreneurial.

Sharing the knowledge gained from our partnerships with specialist umbrella bodies and wide range of clients, we work with clients at a strategic level to find ways to make their plans happen, and help them appraise opportunities from recent developments and Government policy.

Charities are complex businesses and as such, our team incorporates specialists from across the firm enabling us to advise and assist our clients across the full range of their operations.

“We have worked successfully with Hempsons for several years and remain highly impressed with their specialist knowledge of the charity sector in particular.  We have dealt with a number of experts from Hempsons ranging from employment, property, contractual and constitutional matters and on company and charity law and regulatory issues. In each key area we have received high quality support, and speedy turnaround and responses, which is most impressive.”
