Whether through a monthly retainer, fixed-fee or ad-hoc advice, we have options to provide you with the best value for your needs. Our retainer clients tell us that taking advice regularly significantly reduces the risk of claims, and reputational risk while increasing morale and staff retention. Fixed-fee clients appreciate financial certainty when engaging us on discrete issues such as a redundancy programme or variation to contract exercise.
Specialising in charity sector advice, we support charities though difficult issues such as trustee disputes, governance training and amendment of governance documentation, policies and procedures.

Assisting educational institutions with media and press interest and taking a pro-active stance on reputation management also features in this context, especially in cases of criminal allegations or safeguarding matters.
We have also advised on sensitive ecclesiastical matters.
