We believe in the power of enterprise to create positive change, and we support people and organisations who are change makers in their sectors, their markets, and their communities.
We describe this sector as “social business”. This is the thread that unites our work with:
- Businesses driven by their values
- Community organisations
- Social enterprises
- Co-operatives and mutuals
As a social business, you will understand the delicate balance between having a strong commercial focus and a values-driven ethos. Here at Anthony Collins Solicitors, we understand the importance of not compromising either, which is why we put you and your needs at the centre of the legal process and at the very heart of our business. We want to help you maximise your impact.
Anthony Collins Solicitors has become a market leader in social business. Our track record in community regeneration, social enterprise development, and support to the co-operative movement is unique, mirrored in our own purpose to improve lives, communities and society.
Law and social businesses
Law impacts on social businesses in all sorts of ways. We design new social businesses, and help existing organisations develop or evolve, as well as helping clients acquire assets and with development. We advise on commercial contracts and a wide range of business issues and help community groups manage their own housing, social enterprises deliver public services, and develop customer, employee or multi-constituency ownership in co-operatives. We deal with employment advice at every stage of the staff relationship. And we do all this with a clear focus on helping you drive the change that you want to see in the communities where you work. Your work is important, and we want to help you achieve your goals and sit comfortably in a place where you can enjoy a long-term sustainable future.
For the past few years, we have engaged Anthony Collins Solicitors for support across a multitude of projects as well as ad-hoc advice. The quality of the support and advice received to date across the board cannot be faulted. Anthony Collins Solicitors is proactive in its approach to meet our needs, and have proven to be meticulous and their flexible attitude also helps maintain a strong and close working relationship. Based on my experience, I have no hesitation in recommending their services.Finance Director, Greenwich Leisure Limited.
