Selling or purchasing charities is a specialist transaction, in which Hewetts have considerable experience. We have acted for numerous charities, large and small, in mergers and acquisitions. There are of course many similarities with the transaction of the selling of companies, however charities tend to be limited by guarantee and therefore run by Members, with company’s being limited by shares and run by Directors and Shareholders. Therefore a different approach is required. We can offer experienced and practical legal advice. We are based in Reading but operate a national service.
