Charity and voluntary sector work is at the heart of Stone King’s practice. The firm is recognised as one of the leading practices in the UK. We act for many hundreds of voluntary organisations including 189 of the country’s largest charities with activities ranging across a broad spectrum including:
- Animal welfare
- Community development
- Heritage and arts
- Public sector services
- Recreation and sports
- Rescue services
- Science and research
- Welfare and aid
Our aim is to provide practical solutions to problems based on our in-depth knowledge and experience. We understand that ‘charities mean business’ and we bring that approach to our advice on:
- New organisations
- Constitution and governance
- Trustee issues
- Funding and commercial arrangements
- Dealing with regulators
- Legacy issues
In addition to working with others on major conferences in the not-for-profit sector, we regularly run a range of seminars and workshops for our clients. These provide a relaxed and informal forum for discussion allowing our clients to obtain expert advice from specialists within our firm. They also provide opportunities for our clients to meet colleagues in similar organisations for networking or knowledge sharing purposes. Recent topics have included legacy disputes and various employment issues.
We also produce a number of regular newsletters covering a range of legal services including charity, education, corporate/commercial and employment.
