Legal services for cooperatives
Many cooperatives, charities, mutual societies and others in the third sector are substantial businesses, but their drivers are not the same as those in the private sector. They must comply with the laws which apply to all businesses as well as those which are particular to them, including the Charities Acts and Industrial and Provident Societies Acts.
We advise on all aspects of the affairs of third sector organisations, including:
- Constitution and structure
- The duties and liabilities of charitable trustees and
- Trading as a charity.
Our team has extensive experience of advising:
- Care homes
- Charities for the disabled
- Farming co-operatives
- Schools and colleges
