Girlings Charity Seminar and Afternoon Tea: Changing Structures and Mergers

Many thanks to all the guests who attended the Girlings Solicitors Charity Seminar and Afternoon Tea at the Kent Cricket Club Pavilion yesterday.

Senior representatives of a wide range of Kent-based charities were welcomed by Consultant Solicitor Caroline Armitage, the Head of Girlings’ Charity and Not for Profit Group, and her panel, which included:

Jeremy Burke (Partner & Head of Dept, Commercial Property)

Charlotte Nock (Partner & Head of Dept, Private Client)

David Morgan (Partner, Employment Law)

Sophie Robins (Senior Associate Solicitor, Commercial Property)

And Elesha Bradford (Trainee Solicitor, Corporate Law)

Caroline’s presentation began with an overview of the sector, before looking at more specific options for continuity, change, and collaboration. She also outlined the legal structures that govern the merging of charities, together with some common opportunities and challenges faced during the merger process.

Guests then enjoyed an afternoon tea, before rounding off the event with a lively question and answer session.

With our rich mix of cross-departmental charitable and Not for Profit expertise, Girlings Solicitors very much welcomed the opportunity to build relationships with such an engaged audience.

We hope all our guests found the session interesting, relevant and insightful, and look forward to welcoming you to similar events in the future.
