New resource to make legal support more affordable for charities and social enterprises
Law firm Bates Wells Braithwaite (BWB) has committed £1 million of legal support for charities and social enterprises via its client tool, Get Legal.
In partnership with NCVO and SEUK, the law firm, which specialises in charity and social enterprise law, is donating vouchers that will enable over 15,000 individuals and organisations to access and download bespoke legal documents, worth a total of £1 million.
BWB Get Legal was created to give not-for-profit organisations access to high quality legal services. It has made bespoke legal documents “accessible and affordable for all charities and social enterprises”.
Documents on the site are available for charities and social enterprises to purchase, “priced at about one-tenth of what it would cost to commission a solicitor to draft them”. Documents are kept up-to-date through regular reviews. The document-tailoring process is supplemented by detailed guidance and notes from BWB solicitors.
