We’ve supported not-for-profits for more than 30 years and have a deep understanding of how expanding legal and compliance requirements are impacting their ability to operate effectively and provide services to the community.
We provide clear and practical legal guidance that adds significant value to those we work with. Our NFP lawyers serve on the boards and advisory committees of many charities and not-for-profit organisations.
Our clients include charities, health and aged care organisations, education providers, disability services, housing providers and industry associations. We advise on corporate governance and regulatory compliance, funding and fundraising, protection of intellectual property, charities legislation and tax law, and operational aspects including property, employment, workplace health and safety and dispute resolution.
The not-for-profit sector is facing significant legal and regulatory change. Tax laws relating to charities and NFPS and legal and compliance issues are subject to ongoing review, and State and Federal Government legislation – such as the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) – is placing additional pressure on operating costs.
