One of the barriers to philanthropic activity is access to clear advice on structuring arrangements in the most tax efficient way – both for you and your chosen projects or charities. By sharing a genuine understanding of what you want to achieve, together with wide contacts in the philanthropic sector, we can advise on the best mechanisms to put your money to work.
When making a charitable gift of starting a foundation or other project, you want to ensure your money is put to good use. Our experience operating in the sector means we are extremely well placed to help you do this. You will be dealing with lawyers that have a deep understanding of your needs, gained from a long tradition of advising high-net-worth and high-profile individuals and families.
We can advise you on:
- Private charitable foundations and philanthropic structures
- Tax efficient giving programmes and funding arrangements
- Governance arrangements
- Legacies and contentious probate, including claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975, challenges to validity and interpretation of wills and estate planning.
