We've advised the marine conservation charity, Surfers Against Sewage, with the drafting of precedent sponsorship agreements and legal contracts.
Based in Cornwall, Surfers Against Sewage is a community dedicated to the protection of oceans, waves, beaches and wildlife, tackling plastic pollution and protecting the UK coastlines.
We supported the charity in reviewing and drafting its legal materials, specifically around sponsorship agreements, to ensure they are legally protected in their mission.
Commenting on the project, partner Ronald Graham said: "This opportunity came to us thanks to our new associate Jonny, who is a keen surfer and who connected us with Surfers Against Sewage. Our advice has future proofed the charity and will allow them to continue their vital work. It is a pleasure to have been able to flex our legal muscles for a worthy cause and I look forward to a continuing relationship."
Pete Lewis, Director of Fundraising of Surfers Against Sewage, said: "We are hugely grateful for assistance from Taylor Wessing in addressing what we considered to be an area of significant business risk."
The team was led by partner Ronald Graham and associate Jonny Parker.
