Over our 160 years of service to the Charities and Not-For-Profits (NFP) sector, we have built up a wealth of experience and expertise in advising the sector.  A number of our lawyers sit on Boards and Committees of Charities and NFPs.  This sets us apart. We bring this experience to bear for the benefit of clients.  It helps us bring a practical approach to applying our considerable legal expertise to providing focussed advice to clients in the Charities and NFPs sector.

Based on this experience, we have a deep understanding of the sector and enjoy long standing relationships with clients in it.
