Turcan Connell's renowned charity law team are leading the development of charity law in Scotland. From national institutions to small foundations, we give advice that is tailored to our clients' needs.
Charity law in Scotland has seen significant changes in recent years, and with new legislation comes new challenges. Turcan Connell's charity lawyers have extensive experience in the not-for-profit sector and provide specialist advice on a range of areas including the creation and merger of charities, variation of purposes, trustees' powers and duties, employment, and relationships with regulatory bodies such as HM Revenue & Customs, the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator, Companies House and other arms of Government.
Our charity lawyers service to charities also includes accounting and administration, in itself an increasingly specialised area, through our Edinburgh-based Turcan Connell Charity Office.
It is important that charities of all types, from small independent fundraising bodies to major national organisations, are fully compliant with current charity law in Scotland. Turcan Connell's Edinburgh-based charity solicitors can provide authoritative legal guidance and support to charities and other not-for-profit bodies, allowing them to focus on their primary goals.
