Charity Offences

MTM has long experience of representing and defending charities and third sector/social enterprise organisations of all shapes and sizes.  We also work with public sector related charities, as well as individuals, companies, churches and religious organisations in criminal law cases that span the globe and go back many years – often decades. 

Religious organisations and charities are, quite rightly, acutely aware of the need to protect their reputations and those of their members and staff.  At MTM, we specialise in such work and approach every detail of a case with complete discretion. 

Recent cases have involved us protecting the interests of a major, world-wide church and its members in serious, historical allegations.  This work has meant regular contact with senior church members in in London, Europe and the USA.   We work to gain knowledge of the individuals concerned, shaping the outcome of investigations by providing clear advice from the outset.

If you are wrestling with potentially damaging reputational issues, including highly complex regulatory charges or with charges relating to financial mismanagement and fraud, we can help you.  We can also simply hold a watching brief for a charity or an organisation, protecting your best interests at every turn.  Whatever the issues you are facing, we can resolve them; we regularly act for clients in cases involving bodies such as HMRC and the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR). 

Taking early action is the best way to approach a case and get the best possible outcome. Whatever your position - whether you have been charged or are about to be charged with an offence - call us on 0800 328 0944 for an initial free and confidential consultation.
