The Team also has a particular interest in working with regional sports charities and disability sports across Sussex and Kent and has worked on a number of high profile conservation and adventure expeditions.

  • Employment and volunteer issues
  • Advice for trustees
  • Fundraising and trading
  • Commercial and contract negotiation

Working with national charities

Our expertise has allowed us to build up an impressive roster of national charities with whom we work. Our advice spans the entire spectrum of legal advice and clients include The National Autistic Society, Action for Deafness and the Air Ambulance Trust.

L500 leading firm

Rix & Kay Solicitors LLP’s Uckfield practice assists charities and non-profit organisations with all aspects of their operations, such as registration, constitution and governance, commercial and corporate negotiations, property acquisitions, fundraising and contentious matters. Bruce Hayter, Alan Zeal and Richard Cripps are the key contacts.

‘All the advisers are extremely supportive and knowledgeable. As an organisation they compare well to other firms as we have a variety of contacts who understand and have a good knowledge of our organisation.‘

‘Bruce Hayter has a huge social conscience and has helped lead the way in Sussex to bring together organisations from the public, private and voluntary sector to use the power of sport to help local communities.‘
