Legal Advice For Charities
At Buss Murton we have an experienced team of lawyers specialising in non-profit organisations and other related areas.
Over time, there has been a rise in individuals and businesses donating time, expertise, and funds to charities, and our team – with its extensive knowledge and expertise in legal advice for charities – is here to assist you with all of the obstacles that come your way. Whether you are a charity or a charitable trustee, we’ll make sure nothing slows down your mission of philanthropy.
Non-profit endeavours can take the form of small local charities or much larger organisations, which may be national or international in scope. Charities can be involved in a wide range of activities spanning from assisting young people, old people, and animals, protecting the environment, and helping those less fortunate than most. These, of course, are only a few of the charitable endeavours Buss Murton covers in their charity legal advice.
However, over the last few decades there has been a significant change in how charities operate. They have become larger and more complex, requiring a lot more administration and oversight than ever before. Many of these organisations, in fact, have trading arms and the interplay between trading activities, and charitable status can be a difficult area to make sense of.
The legal and taxation regulations governing the formation, merger and closure of charities and other community-based structures can be a daunting labyrinth to navigate. Non-profit organisations find themselves facing several legal hurdles, including employment law issues (yes, that includes volunteers), legal issues surrounding the ownership and sale of land, and the utilisation of intellectual property. You don’t have to face this alone, and here at Buss Murton we are more than happy to give you comprehensive legal advice for charities and other non-profit institutions.
