Speak to us

International not for profits and impact businesses

Societal issues do not recognise borders – to address these challenges many not for profits find it helpful to have a presence in multiple jurisdictions. Our specialist not for profit team has extensive experience with advising not for profit organisations and impact businesses that work internationally.

Sectors and Services

International not for profits and impact businesses

What we do:

Our not for profit team works with UK-based organisations that have activities in another country and overseas organisations with a presence in the UK, or which wish to establish a presence here, providing a range of regulatory, operational and compliance support.

Our team, entirely dedicated to advising charities and not for profits, has vast experience of working both with and within the sector and deals with all types of concerns and offers specialist expertise in particularly complex or unusual matters that affect this sector.

Our experience includes advising on:

  • The creation of not for profit group structures which may include ‘branches’ for existing overseas charities
  • Cross border fundraising strategies
  • The range of not for profit vehicles available
  • UK/US dual qualified charities
  • Re-organising international charitable groups, including their trading arms
  • Populating the board and their roles and responsibilities

We have developed particular expertise in advising charities operating internationally, in particular in establishing cross-border, charity group structures to coordinate activities across different jurisdictions – mindful of the regulatory obligation of each board to demonstrate appropriate independence in each jurisdiction.

Our charities group, comprising 40 lawyers, is one of the largest in any law firm in the UK; and we are endorsed by The Legal 500 and Chambers UK Guide to the Legal Profession as one of the leading charity law firms.
