We provide support in realising projects for the public benefit.

We provide mission-driven organisations of all types and sizes the practical and commercial advice they need to grow, fundraise and reach their goals.

We also support boards looking to improve their governance and to understand their duties and liabilities.

Our Sustainable Economy practice encompasses the full range of legal matters which charities, not-for-profits, mission-driven businesses and impact investors encounter, offering practical advice on charity and commercial law and assist our clients with reorganisations, joint ventures and other forms of collaborative working, as well as constitutional reviews.

We offer day-to-day support to our clients, from set-up and registration, to ongoing regulatory and legislative compliance and all related commercial advice.

Our team assists investors and intermediaries who deploy capital in pursuit of positive social returns alongside profitability: institutional investors, banks and impact funds, private equity and venture capital funds, foundations and individuals. We support them in structuring and documenting the whole spectrum of sustainable finance and impact investment transactions and activities.
