Overview

Rollits' dedicated charities team offers a truly comprehensive package of support for charities to meet legal needs that are as varied as the work of the organisations we assist.

Our joined-up approach, free of legal jargon, enables us to provide an accessible and friendly service. Rollits also remains at the forefront of developments in a fast-moving and competitive field, regularly contributing to leading charity law journals, running an annual free charities legal update seminar and offering bespoke in-house training.

Experience and expertise

Our team is recognised for the breadth and depth of its expertise, with individuals in the team drawn from across the firm's departments. As well as dealing with charity law, our team includes specialists in employment, property, company and commercial law, dispute resolution, trusts, tax and social housing - all areas where charities now need specialist advice.

We have considerable experience of working on a wide range of projects for charities delivering public services and also advise charities on governance and structural issues, contractual, employment and pensions issues.

We can also advise on all matters relating to Community Interest Companies (CICs). Often set up as trading subsidiaries by charities, CICs come with their own specific legal requirements and challenges and we can help you to overcome these through offering comprehensive guidance.
