Active throughout Australia, Gadens’ Charities and Not-for-Profit Team has extensive experience working with a wide range of religious, charitable and other not-for-profit bodies across a range of areas including aged care and retirement, scientific research, health promotion, public benevolent institutions and community welfare, overseas aid and development, arts and culture, social ventures, and philanthropic trusts and foundations.
Our deep understanding of the governance and operational frameworks in which charities and not-for-profits operate, in addition to our extensive experience working with a diverse range of entities, means we are able to deliver practical solutions. We regularly advise on all types of governance and operational matters as well as strategy advice from establishing new ventures and general tax considerations to funding, sponsorships, conducting risk assessments and reputation management.
Our team of practitioners offer expertise across all practice areas encompassing corporate, tax, litigation, property and finance which has bolstered our experience in the sector particularly in relation to trust law issues, joint ventures, partnerships and business alliances, taxation, stamp duty, investment schemes and registration as well as advising in relation to policy statements and rulings.
Sudden and disruptive events can happen at any time. Our team of practitioners work with clients to quickly and effectively respond to a crisis including providing urgent representation and advice, advising on reputation management and managing regulatory compliance and communication.
