Charity operations and commercial contracts

Charities frequently call on us for legal advice on fundraising, partnerships and sponsorship deals. We also give input on all varieties of commercial arrangements and trading activities, putting contracts in place to protect your interests.

Whether you are a charity, non-profit or social enterprise, your priority is to make sure you keep delivering the greatest impact for your beneficiaries.

This might mean helping you generate income from sponsorship deals or partnerships, or through putting robust contracts in place to protect you in your relationships with your suppliers and service providers.

We advise on all types of commercial arrangements and trading activities, including hire agreements, supply contracts and project management arrangements.

When it comes to fundraising, you need flexible advice – whether this relates to events and campaigns, working with major donors, seeking legacies or via your partnerships.

We’ve recently advised a major high street name charity on a collaboration with Channel 4, SSAFA the Armed Forces charity on its sponsorship agreement with BT and British Red Cross on a national loyalty card scheme.
