Brodies' charities team understands and is committed to assisting charities and third sector bodies, social enterprise, public sector related charities as well as individuals and companies with philanthropic and social mission goals.

We support charitable, social and philanthropic objectives with a full range of legal and governance advice such as structures and set-up, training, contracts and employment matters, regulatory (OSCR, HMRC, Care Inspectorate, Gambling Commission and beyond), collaboration and mergers, funding and fundraising, intellectual property, social finance, lending and investment, wills, trusts and tax as well as real estate projects.

Each organisation is different. Our experience of working with a broad spectrum of charities of varying sizes, structures and purposes has highlighted the range of legal services required and we have tailored our services to meet the individual needs of each - needs that may be complex or may require no more than sensitive guidance around governance and compliance. The range of charities and third sector bodies is wide. The range of organisations we help is equally wide including universities, family foundations, galleries, theatres and music venues, service providing charities, lotteries, Corporate Social Responsibility projects and social enterprises.

Our charities team harnesses the expertise and experience of lawyers with a commercial pedigree from all sectors, including solicitors with corporate, private client and regulatory backgrounds.

As part of the Scottish headquartered firm with the largest legal resource in Scotland, we are able to offer the full range of legal services that are tailored to their specific needs and are relevant to the rapidly evolving charity sector.
