We can provide you with practical, timely and appropriate legal support and advice.

Legal services

ANSON legal services offers independent and professional legal support and advice for Not for Profit organisations.

Our approach is to provide you with practical, timely and appropriate legal support and advice. Which means you can concentrate on what you do best – continuing to make a positive social impact in our community.

We offer you legal services that are

Appropriate – Because we’re Not for Profit specialists we understand your environment and how outcomes affect your overall mission.

Timely – In this period of great change within the Not for Profit sector, it pays to be nimble and innovative. But taking on new contracts, creating MOUs, and developing commercial arrangements all need careful consideration. We can help with that.

Cost effective – We provide legal services when you need it, on a pay per use basis. We don’t use retainers.

Flexible – As with all of our work our legal services are tailored and flexible to suit your needs.

In-house counsel

For many small to medium Not for Profit organisations, it’s not economically feasible to have an in-house counsel on the payroll. By offering in-house counsel contracting at affordable rates we ensure you have experienced and unbiased legal services, provided by someone who understands your environment.

For those larger organisations with in-house counsel, our contracting service can provide support during busy periods or for larger projects. We can also offer mentoring for your legal staff, helping them to up-skill and providing an independent sounding board to talk through the more complex issues.

Sourcing specialists

When you have an issue requiring specialist legal advice, it can be difficult and time-consuming to find the right lawyer. Utilising our extensive connections within the WA legal profession, we source specialist lawyers ensuring they are suitable to your situation, your issue and your budget.

Legal project management

When you have a large-scale project, we can provide legal advice and support across departments and make sure the right information at the right time keeps the project on track.

When we can help

We can assist you with a wide range of situations and legal issues including:

  • Mergers and acquisitions – carrying out due diligence and advising on the legal implications of operational issues and options under negotiation.
  • Board and governance – providing support for Boards to increase their understanding of the risks and legal implications of their role and their decision-making.
  • Regulation and compliance – making sure your services, policies and procedures accommodate the latest legislation.
  • Contract development and management – keeping contracts on track ultimately protects your financial future.
