Not-for-Profit & Schools

  • Substantial expertise dealing with a range of both contentious and non-contentious issues
  • Award winning lawyers offer practical advice and strong representation
  • We work across a range of education providers, from Primary Schools to Tertiary Institutions.

Are you on the board or executive a non-profit or charitable organisation? Do you have in place clear policies, contracts with staff including volunteers and casuals? Have you documented the rights and obligations of board members and are they insured and covered for the individual risks they are exposed to in their role?  Are you concerned about compliance with the new environment of regulation and reporting now administered by the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission.

Since its inception, HHG has advised and worked alongside a large variety of not-for-profit organisations in our community which promote charitable, religious, sporting, community or professional objectives.  Our directors and staff are active in a number of organisations serving our community, both locally and internationally. We are active members of the peak governance body the Australian Institute of Company Directors [link] and in that role are part of the ongoing governance-education community pursuing best practice in organisational governance.

We have a team dedicated to understanding this evolving area of law and ready to provide timely, practical and cost effective advice. We are happy to specially design a service offering which meets your organisation’s needs and budget.  Legal compliance and governance arrangements are commonly overlooked in organisations staffed by volunteers and steered by passionate, visionary community leaders. However, as modern life and human interaction has become more complex, legal risk has increased and the law has developed to impose increasingly serious obligations on boards to have sound policies and procedures in place to meet these increased risks.  We would be pleased to discuss with your board proven strategies for sound governance and managing risk in the organisation.

If you are faced with a dispute internally, or an external issue regarding a supplier or stakeholder, we have the experience and specialised knowledge to support and advise the organisation and its board.
