Farrer & Co

Farrer Co is synonymous with the highest quality legal advice and service. We advise charities, other not-for-profit organisations, individuals, families, businesses and financial services organisations on every aspect of the law, wherever the need arises. From our offices in London we work with trusted professionals around the world to deliver a seamless international service. We have been one of the foremost advisers to the charity sector for many years, and our clients include internationally renowned organisations. With longstanding relationships across the sector, we have a deep understanding of the demands upon large, sophisticated charities.

Our team includes some of the UK's leading experts on charity law, with experience supporting national and international organisations through major growth and complex change as well as in their innovative and crucial charitable work, day by day. 

Charities seek our advice on every aspect of their operations from challenging regulatory and compliance issues, through complex questions around charitable structures, trading, fundraising, financial difficulties and insolvency, legacy disputes, serious incident reports, tax and social investment, to major governance reviews - sometimes under close public and regulatory scrutiny. Working with reputation management, corporate, commercial property and other specialists from across the firm, we support charities with crisis management, disputes, major infrastructure projects and mergers and restructuring.

With expertise that spans areas including intellectual property and brand licensing we also regularly advise charities on how they can protect and commercially exploit their brands. Increasingly charitable organisations also look to us for guidance on how they should protect the personal data they hold and their obligations under new law in this area.
