Education, Charities and not for profit.

We act for a wide range of charities and other not for profit institutions including trusts, schools, charity companies, registered social landlords, clubs and other unincorporated associations.

Charities and voluntary organisations face complex and ever changing legislation, whilst balancing the demands of fund raising with operating within the limits of the regulatory framework, often with limited resources.

As well as charity law, our lawyers are able to share their expertise in assisting clients across the full range of their operations.

Many of our partners are trustees, governors and directors of such organisations, and bring with them a wealth of legal and practical expertise in this sector through years of advising and running such bodies.

Mundays advises all types of businesses from start-ups to public companies, charities in the form of charitable trusts and companies limited by guarantee together with non-charitable companies limited by guarantee such as social enterprises.
