Our charity solicitors deliver high-quality, relevant advice and offer tailored packages to minimise your risks and legal spend.
We will invest time to understand your needs and carefully put together a bespoke legal support package to provide you with maximum value where you need it most.
Packages will typically include:
If you have an in-house legal team, we will provide expertise and knowledge to support them in their role. We can also act as your legal counsel, becoming an integral part of your team.
Whether you need advice on a single matter or require a trusted partner for all your legal needs, we will be on hand to support you.
We are proud to have worked with some of the UK’s most inspirational charities, from household names that reach millions of people every day to small charities that raise awareness of vital issues.
Our charity lawyers have significant experience in advising charities in areas such as contracting and data protection, commercial property, employment and HR support, licensing, property litigation and legacy management.
Many of our charity solicitors are consistently recognised as a ‘Recommended Lawyer’ in the leading client directory, The Legal 500, and praised for their “commercial approach, exceptional service and fast response times”.
“Our working relationship with Flint Bishop has positively changed our approach to reviewing and entering into contracts, and also provided us with a better understanding of data protection legislation. The team at Flint Bishop offers clear, pragmatic and timely advice and always communicates in a friendly and professional manner.
We were introduced to the firm by a procurement practitioner, and from our very first meeting, it was clear that they understood the pressures we were facing with updating our contracts. We had a backlog of contracts where we didn’t have the time or expertise to review their robustness concerning the various contractual and related data protection issues.
Because cost certainty is important to us as a charitable organisation, Flint Bishop set up a fixed costs retainer package for us which we have since renewed. The benefit of having a legal team on hand to deal with any contractual queries we might have, without the need to ask for quotes or sign letters of engagement each time, makes its service easy to access. Our previous concerns about interpreting legal provisions and getting contracts over the line in a timely manner, are now a thing of the past, thanks to the legal support from Flint Bishop.”

‘’Martin’s advice is clear, measured, balanced and timely. Whilst it sets out the legal background and risks accurately it is pitched in a way that allows easy translation into the organisational and operational context that we are managing. By setting out the array of options that we have, Martin enables us to take a pro-active approach to our actions.’’
Head of HR
“The team at Flint Bishop have been an invaluable support in helping us implement the General Data Protection Regulation and Data Protection Act 2018. They have provided sound advice in difficult scenarios, assisted with writing responses affirming us as a data controller when local authorities suggest we are a data processor and provide a great sounding board when I need to discuss understanding and application of the regulations.”

“Flint Bishop has always provided us with fast and friendly advice in respect of our tenanted residential property needs. They have taken the time to understand our organisation and deal with difficult and unusual situations efficiently and sympathetically. I have no hesitation in recommending them.”
Chief Executive Officer at FHE
“We have been incredibly happy with all of the support and advice that we have received from Flint Bishop. We had some tricky workplace scenarios (some unforeseen) and being able to have a named solicitor to liaise with was very much appreciated. We also appreciate that you are not risk aversive and ask us about the outcome that we would like to achieve.”
