On Wednesday 22nd June, Clapham & Collinge held a legal briefing on 'The Business of Charities' aimed at senior management, trustees, volunteers and all those involved in charities.
With over 70 attendees, this briefing provided an essential 'tool kit' on the legal developments in the charity sector and provided practical advice on how a charity can operate efficiently and effectively in a very competitive market.
During the briefing, Neale Grearson (Partner and Head of Charities Department), Lauren Abbs (Solicitor), Michael Olmer (Consultant Solicitor) and Jade Tinney (Solicitor) highlighted recent charity news headlines and provided useful advice on dealing with vulnerable clients, governance and structure, charities owning property, roles and responsibilities of trustees and what anyone involved in a charity needs to know.
