Franks Ogilvie specialises in supporting member based organisations and not-for-profit organisations. We understand the unique challenges organisation like these can face and often the need for legal advice to be available not just to leadership but also the members.

We can assist and organisations on how to organise their structure, deal with members, shareholders and board member disputes. We help with managing constitutional processes like rule changes and meetings.

Since the Incorporated Societies Act passed in 2022, we have advised on a significant number of constitutional changes for clients in preparation for re-registering.

Examples of our work:

Case Study: Drafting a constitution

Case Study: Handling complaints

6 Tips for Incorporating a Society

Give the team a call

We’re likely to know who makes the decisions, why, and how politics or the law can compel you or trip you up.
If it takes less than 20 minutes we rarely charge.
There are not many specialist public lawyers. Even fewer have commercial experience. We start and end with commercial interests at heart.
