We have published this via Practical Law Article, Charity trustees: what duties survive resignation? by Matthew Smith of Maitland Chambers.
This considers whether a charity trustee can resign in their own interests and the extent to which their duties survive resignation. In particular, it looks at the position of a charity trustee who resigns to take up a paid position with the charity, and of a charity trustee who resigns in the face of regulatory intervention or wrong-doing in the charity.
This is the seventh instalment in Practical Law’s series of opinion pieces on issues in charity law and practice – A view from the Charities Bar:
- Members of charitable companies as fiduciaries: an objective or subjective standard?.
- Members of charitable companies as fiduciaries: more questions than answers?.
- Can a charity’s assets be protected from creditors?.
- The good name of charity.
- Charity trustees: no one can serve two masters.
- Charitable companies: how far do fiduciary duties of members extend?.
While Matthew’s practice embraces all aspects of commercial chancery litigation, he has substantial experience and expertise in charity matters. He has been recommended for many years in the Chambers UK Bar Guide for Charities as a ‘Star Individual’.
