Charities


We recognise that charities and other social enterprises come in all shapes and sizes and consequently have a broad and varied need for legal services.

Langleys' charity group brings together in one place all of the key services that are likely to be relevant to an organisation operating either as a charity or in the wider third sector.

The firm's long history of service to this sector means that we are well placed to give practical, workable and cost effective legal advice.

A number of our partners serve as trustees themselves so we understand that charities have to be mindful of the legal and regulatory framework in which they exist.

We also believe that strong commercial advice (which we are well placed to offer) is more likely to see a charity thrive and prosper.

The team acts for a number of high profile charities in Yorkshire and the East Midlands and has links with many local agencies, who can often assist clients with their development needs.

Testimonial

"Andrew and his firm have been phenomenal in helping us to set up the Jonny Wilkinson Foundation. Without his expert support driving and guiding us through the many different avenues involved in creating and registering a charitable body I am not sure we would have succeeded. The service has been fantastic, enormously professional and very friendly too. Thank you for all effort and hard work. It has played a big part in the opportunity we now have to make a difference to people lives."
