The Private Client team at BDO works both in the UK and internationally, with over 50 Partners and Directors and over 300 full-time professionals.

We see the importance and impact of Philanthropy through advising our clients on a daily basis. COVID-19 has presented society with challenges none of us could have prepared for. No matter how or what you have given in the past now may be the time for us all to ‘rethink’ our strategy, and the level of our engagement and contributions. Everyone’s reasons for giving are personal, and we seek to advise clients on the benefits of giving that are unique to them and their family, and how to inspire future generations to get involved with family philanthropy.
Bates Wells is a truly purpose-driven law firm and was the first UK law firm to certify as a B Corp. This means we consider the impact of our business decisions on our people, clients, suppliers, community, and the environment. With the UK’s largest dedicated charities department, we advise organisations and individuals on all types of charitable giving and have particular expertise in corporate philanthropy and social investment.
We have clients across six continents who are serviced by dedicated teams with the experience and specialist qualifications to look after their bespoke needs. Be that fintech entrepreneurs or globally mobile sports professionals, family offices or lottery winners, landed estates or multi-generational family businesses.
We don’t have relationship managers, clients have direct, day-to-day, access to those making decisions on their behalf. We have been looking after a significant proportion of clients for several decades, with our longest standing client, now comprising the fifth and sixth generation having appointed us in 1917. Relationships like this cannot be done at arms’ length.
We are on a mission to transform the way SMEs and charities do business, moving us to a sustainable economy.

We support organisations who want to work in partnership, collaborate to achieve change, and actively involve those most affected, in decision making.
We know that businesses and charities who embrace sustainable development today, are the ones who thrive financially, socially and reputationally, tomorrow and into the future.
SDG Changemakers run workshops and partner with organisations on projects to show them how to embed, measure and communicate social and environmental value. We use the UN's universal call to action, the 17 Sustainable Development Goalds (SDG), as our framework linking them back to local and nationally led initiatives such as the TOMs, SBTi, GRI, ISO, PRI, SASB and the United Nations Global Compact.
We believe that every organisation should have access to effective, affordable and focused support to help them achieve their vision. As part of our commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals, we provide cost-effective solutions to transform, ignite and empower like-minded change-makers.
We also pledge to return at least 1% of our profits to support organisations who are beacons of these values and where our support can make a difference.
By leading with a sustainable purpose, SDG Changemakers is committed to responsible leadership, community-led innovation and financial, social and environmental sustainability.
