Social Enterprise: Start up and Structure

Social Enterprise: Start up and Structure

There are many different types of Social Enterprise. Before you start your Social Enterprise we can help you decide which type of Social Enterprise best for you. You need lawyers who can help you every step of the way.  We’ll help you consider issues such as:

  • Management and control of the Social Enterprise
  • Stakeholder involvement
  • Funding and Finance
  • Limitation of risk
  • Reporting and regulation

Once you have a clear idea of how you want your Social Enterprise to be set up and managed we can then do the legal work to make your ideas a reality.

How you operate your Social Enterprise should then be monitored and developed as appropriate. Once a Social Enterprise has been in operation for a while it may you may want to change its structure to cope with its new activities. For example it may wish to:

  • Take on larger contracts
  • Buy or lease property
  • Employ people
  • Expand and raise additional funding
  • Branch out into a new service area
  • Enter into Joint Venture or partnering arrangements
  • Tender for new work
  • Set up associated organisations

We can help you to achieve those goals.
