Charity Legal Services

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.

  • Rollits have a professional team who respond in an efficient, effective and timely manner. Communication is excellent and this facilitates an appropriate professional relationship and service, which is tailored to the individual needs of the client.

  • Rollits have detailed knowledge and experience of working with clients in the charity sector, in-particular, navigating legal organisation changes. That experience is applied to provide comprehensive information, to ensure that all options are explained to clients and explored.

  • “When working in partnership with Rollits, as I do for many projects and campaigns, I trust them to give me an honest response on every occasion. They are genuine in their passion for the city, region and its prosperity, and self-interest is always over-shadowed by their desire to prioritise community, and opportunity for the next generation. I feel that Rollits always strive to make a difference on projects and partnerships of all scales.”

  • “J R Rix & Sons Ltd are a diverse company with business interests that span fuel distribution, manufacturing holiday homes, cars sales and property. Rollits are professional and approachable and we have great confidence in the wide range of legal advice that they have provided us with for many years.”

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.
