This is a sector where every organisation, and every new project, has its own set of objectives and priorities. Our approach to each new assignment involves close engagement with the clients - clearly identifying needs and aspirations, and building up a legal model that is closely attuned to their specific requirements.
Our client base includes virtually all of the major third sector umbrella/support organisations in Scotland - including Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations, Social Firms Scotland, Development Trusts Association Scotland, Community Energy Scotland and Co-operative Development Scotland. Some of that work involves flagship projects, which point the way for others to follow; in other cases, we help to develop constitutions and guidance notes which serve as a resource across Scotland.
We also act for a vast number of individual organisations - from major employment/training providers such as The Wise Group, to small-scale organisations doing valuable work at local level - spanning virtually every area of third sector activity.
We are passionate about the third sector and its huge potential. And we are committed to providing the sector with the highest quality of legal advice – delivered in a way that reflects and reinforces the special ethos and values of the sector. Increasingly, the challenges of the current environment are causing charities, social enterprises and others to explore new ways of working. We are ideally placed to provide legal support in responding to these new challenges.
