Charities have obligations, liabilities, operational issues and strategic plans that all have legal aspects but finding the expertise and support to navigate the issues your organisation faces can be challenging.
At Stephens Scown our clients benefit from solicitors who have a track record of supporting clients through a wide range of issues from employment law to property leases, data protection to commercial contracts. We work with a range of clients from national charities to local community energy groups, pioneering new enterprises and social housing providers.
We understand the importance to charities of receiving value for money and we always strive to ensure our clients are given the best legal advice that’s cost-effective. Our solicitors can offer an integrated approach calling on a team of experts from across the firm to advise on:
We genuinely care about our people, local community and the environment. We seek to take business decisions and corporately act in way that is consistent with this care and long term view. Our ‘Giving Back’ programme enables us to support our colleagues to follow their own passions for community and environment, to enrich their lives and increase the positive impact we can have.
