Member Benefits: Turcan Connell

Turcan Connell is pleased to offer members of ACOSVO and Chairs Network Scotland participants access to our charity legal team for advice and guidance. We offer a free initial consultation, either by telephone or a meeting, to discuss any *personal or organisational legal matters and should you require further in-depth legal advice, we will offer competitive rates thereafter. You will also receive invites to our regular charity seminars and the option to sign up to our Charity e-newsletter.


At Turcan Connell, we are proud to be Scotland’s leading firm of legal and tax advisers to individuals, families and charities. With the biggest charity team in Scotland, Turcan Connell advises on everything they are likely to come across in their daily practice.


We advise on the creation and merger of charities, variation of purposes, trustees' powers and duties, and relationships with regulatory bodies such as HM Revenue & Customs, the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator, Companies House and other arms of Government.

Our service to grant making trusts includes accounting and administration, in itself an increasingly specialised area, through Turcan Connell Charity Office.


Clients include charities of all types and of all sizes, including major national bodies, heritage and arts charities, grant-giving trusts, fundraising bodies, endowment funds, private foundations and cross-border charities with operations in Scotland.


Our services include:

  • Charity Law
  • Philanthropy
  • Employment for Charities
  • Land and Property for Charities
  • Corporate Advice
  • Contentious Probate for Charities
  • Fundraising Law and Regulation
  • GDPR

*If we provide personal advice , we would be unable to provide organisational advice on the same matter. In addition, we would also need to carry out a "conflict" check to ensure we do not already act for the organisation.
