Community Groups

We have been assisting charitable clients throughout New Zealand and internationally for many decades.  As well as contributing to leading text books, articles and preparing videos and other resources, we have prepared the guide “Charities in New Zealand: A Legal Handbook”.

To discuss your situation as a community group feel free to get in touch as we specialise in the representation of nonprofit, tax-exempt organisations, including charities, charitable trusts, private foundations (whether company-sponsored or family-endowed), social enterprises, social welfare organisations, public and private schools, tertiary institutions, churches and religious organisations as well as organisations that support this sector.

We have experience in all aspects of community groups including:

  • Forming and administering charitable trusts
  • Incorporation and Registration on the Charities Register
  • Correcting procedural errors in administration of your trust
  • Trustee appointment processes
  • Trust resettlement and restructuring
