Welcome to clarity

Charities and third sector

Scotland's third sector is vibrant, exciting and makes a significant contribution to Scotland's communities and to its economy.  Charities and other voluntary organisations play a key role in supporting Scotland's people and causes, and Scotland is said to lead the world when it comes to our approach to social enterprise.

The experts in our Third Sector Team can help you achieve your goals, whether by incorporating a new organisation, advising on governance matters, employment law or Scottish charity law, helping to secure borrowing or investment or assisting with joint working arrangements.

Our team is ranked for Charity law by Chambers and Partners.

Clear advice

We understand that each third sector organisation is different and that is why we offer a tailored approach to the advice we give and the services we provide to our third sector clients.  Our long history of advising third sector clients and our hands-on experience mean we know what we're talking about - we strive to provide succinct and pragmatic advice. 

Benefits we bring

We know Scotland's third sector landscape is changing, and that means advisers to that sector need to be attuned to those changes and be well-informed.  We are.  Our experts have spent time acting as trustees and on secondment to OSCR, the Scottish charity regulator, and we regularly participate in and speak at sector events.

Our approach to fees

We know it's important to our third sector clients that we provide clarity on fees and that's why we always provide fixed fee quotes in advance where we can.  If it's not possible to provide a fixed fee then we'll provide a clear indication of the likely fee based on an agreed scope of work.
