Chair's Challenge avoiding legal pitfalls logo
Avoiding legal pitfalls

Chairs have a key role in ensuring the charity complies with the law which can feel daunting. The law is complex, wide-ranging, and changeable. Legal advice is typically expensive, may slow things down and can feel like a block to action. But a breach of the law can have serious consequences for the charity, and sometimes for the trustees personally.

This briefing helps you understand the issues and find a workable approach.

Avoiding legal pitfalls has been made possible with the generous support of Thomson ,Snell and Passmore.
