At Shepherd and Wedderburn, we offer the same high quality, incisive legal advice to all of our clients, whether private, public or charity. We do, however, appreciate the different regulatory regimes under which our charity clients work. 

That’s why our charities team is cross-disciplinary, bringing together professionals from different areas of the business, such as employment, property and public sector.  

Our clients include high profile national charities, health care providers and universities and educational institutions. We also advise several privately endowed charities. The advice we offer includes: constitutions, the creation, reorganisation and merger of charities; governance, charity trustee duties; and compliance, including interaction with the Charities Commission, OSCR and HMRC.

  • My experience of Shepherd & Wedderburn is that it is a highly professional firm with well-qualified and well-informed staff and excellent communications, which provides a high standard of reliable legal advice.

  • They are very responsive, keep you up to date with what is going on and they have your interests at heart.

  • Shepherd and Wedderburn delivers "clearly considered and well-reasoned responses".
