Philanthropy services

We act for a number of the world's leading families and have one of the largest charities practices in the UK. It is not surprising, therefore, that we provide a wide range of services to clients who wish to support charitable causes, both in the domestic and the international context.

While some simply wish to support existing charities, others wish to create their own charitable foundations. Some prefer that their gifts should be used up over a relatively short period of time; others wish to establish a program of philanthropic activity which can continue beyond their own lifetime, perpetuating their family name and ethos. Whatever the desired result, we can advise in relation to the structuring and tax-efficient funding of philanthropic endeavor.

Recent work

  • The establishment of charitable foundations for numerous private individuals and advice in relation to their tax-efficient funding.
  • Creating ‘dual qualified' charitable structures to enable donors exposed to UK and US taxation to support charitable causes with maximum tax-efficiency.
