It was Warren Buffett who said that we are in the top 1% of people in the World and it is our responsibility and our privilege to take care of the other 99%. We are the lucky ones. Somewhere along the way we have been lucky. That luck has got us to where we are. But now we have the opportunity to ignite someone else’s life, perhaps many lives.

How do we help charities?

At gunnercooke, we are proud to advise charities across the full range of corporate and commercial legal challenges that they may encounter – in addition to providing leadership, mentoring and guidance to charity leaders through our social business, the gunnercooke foundation.

Our charities team is led by lawyers who have spent many years as in-house counsel at some of the UK’s largest charitable organisations, which gives us an unrivalled understanding of the unique challenges that face this sector.   

We provide a full range of services to our charity clients including set up and formations, restructuring, mergers, governance issues, fundraising issues, exploiting assets, data privacy, grant-making and disputes.  We provide strategic advice and day to day advice alike.
