Social enterprise

This incredibly well-established team has a loyal client base and is viewed as one of the bastions of the sector.

Chambers & Partners

Social enterprise is a term that means different things to different people but, at its most basic, it’s about building businesses which have social aims as well as a desire to make profits, to enable the business to grow.

As long-standing advisers to the charity and community sector we have been advising social enterprises for as long as they have existed (including share companies, companies limited by guarantee or community interest companies).  Colleagues from across the firm have considerable experience of interpreting and using laws of all kinds, many designed for purely commercial situations, to meet the needs of social enterprise clients.  This often means guiding with a light touch through some complex legal mazes.

Our aim is always to build long-term relationships with our clients, advising not just on building the initial foundations, but ensuring your enterprise continues to achieve its charitable and community goals long into the future.
