Livery Companies

We act for a number of Livery Companies, working closely with their officers and professional advisors.

We are proud of our history of partners serving Companies as Master or Clerk in the past. Several of us are members of Livery Companies. Our first-hand knowledge of these ancient City institutions helps us provide advice that respects both their honourable tradition and their role in the modern word, particularly through their extensive charitable activities.


Our work for Livery Companies is based in our charities team, and draws on the skills and experience of colleagues in other departments to advise on a wide range of matters, including:

  • Constitutional matters and governance
  • Application of charity law, and interaction with other applicable laws
  • Commercial agreements
  • Property and asset management
  • Employment and pensions
  • Dispute resolution
  • Legacies and gifts
