"The Law Society Gazette Charity Directories are a useful source of information for clients who need guidance on their charitable giving, whether drafting their wills or discussing lifetime gifts. We’ve also found the publications very helpful when administering trusts or discussing grant making with our charity clients."

Jo Summers, Partner, Jurit LLP

"Advertising with the Law Society Gazette Charity Directories for over 20 years has significantly increased our legacy income. Two thirds of 'Friends of the Animals' veterinary treatments  are funded by legacies and your directory is therefore a crucial element of our fundraising strategy."

Helen Sinclair MBE, Founder, Friends of the Animals

“We received over £104,000 from legacies which came directly from solicitors who received The Law Society Gazette. We are over the moon with the fantastic results from our ongoing advertising with them.”

Trisha Loveland, Hospice Aid UK
