Social Enterprise

Social Enterprise Legal Advice and Support

Social enterprise is a strong and vibrant part of the voluntary sector. It is increasingly recognised as an effective way of delivering services to the public which are about more than the bottom line of returning profit.

Social enterprise requires new and innovative ways of thinking about participation and funding and is now an essential part of many aspects of the delivery of public and other services. Those involved with establishing and growing social enterprises need expert legal advice which is "in context" and recognises the need for new and innovative thinking.

Legal Support for Social Enterprises

Our team has an insightful and deep understanding of the range of legal forms available for social enterprises, from charitable structures to community interest companies. But we also understand the commercial context within which most social enterprises operate and can provide the advice on a range of issues in relation to finance, structuring, contracts and governance which is required in order to ensure that our clients achieve their aim in line with their ethos and vision.


How Can We Help?

We have helped many social enterprise clients to make clear decisions about the kind of structure that they will need and how best to establish and develop their operations. Members of our team are also involved with social enterprises in their own lives, ranging from community based initiatives through to larger scale operations taking on services which have been transferred out of the public sector.

Our expertise in relation to charities and the public sector informs our work for our social enterprise clients.


For specialist social enterprise legal advice and support, please contact Paul Voller on 020 7665 0865 or make an enquiry below.

The quality of service is strong, but always balanced with a practical viewpoint. Advice is therefore not excessively legalistic and can be implemented more easily than would be possible with a more technical approach.
