Public bodies and third sector organisations support the fabric of our society, changing lives every day.

You’ve got important work to do, delivering support to the communities you serve. To enable your work, you need robust governance structures, often enshrined in complex regulations, and an expert legal partner to guide you through the process.

From advice on the rights and responsibilities of officers, observers and members and reporting lines, through to rules and procedures for decision making, conflicts of interest, accounting for benefits and stakeholder rights, we’ve experience working with organisations of all sizes on the complex matters of governance.

Our seamless service and experienced team of experts give you the peace of mind to know all your legal requirements are in safe hands, allowing you can get on with delivering your vital work.
