BWB has written an article for the 2018 Charity Finance Yearbook focusing on the Law Commission’s proposed changes to the law governing charity property transactions.
The new Charity Governance Code replaces Charity Commission guidance with a series of principles for successful operation of charities. Rachael Chapman and Rosie de Galleani outline its provisions and how they apply in property matters.
It has come to our attention that the name Bates Wells & Braithwaite London LLP is being used to request sums of money to be deposited into an escrow account.
