Why we are different
The team is made up of specialists from our Tax and Estate Planning, Employment, Property and Dispute Resolution departments, and provides practical advice, tailored to meet the individual needs of our clients. We understand the unique demands and requirements of the sector.
The reason we stand out from the crowd is our commitment to the sector and our diverse client base. We recognise the unique demands of the sector, value for money, balanced with an increasing need to be professional in your endeavours. Charitable governance is in the spotlight at the moment, following recent high profile problems, and it is vital to ensure you are well governed and compliant. Adverse publicity can really damage charities and threaten their continued existence.
We can advise on all aspects of employment law, a key area of dispute for charities, as in any business, including the crucial differences between employees and volunteers. Our property team regularly advises on charity acquisitions and disposals, ensuring compliance with the charity legislation, as well as lease negotiation and planning issues.
A number of team members and directors of Whitehead Monckton are trustees of charities so they really understand the issues and challenged faced.
We are ranked as a leading firm for Charities in the Legal 500 independent directory and the team is noted for its experience in advising Charities on property transactions, governance, employment, tax and trusts.
