The lawyers at Sterling Legal are community conscious and are active charity and not-for-profit board members. Being so close to the ‘coal face’ when it comes to dealing with issues and challenges experienced by charities and not-for-profit organisations gives them a genuine understanding of this increasingly complex sector.
