Our experienced finance solicitors have extensive knowledge and experience advising organisations on the legal aspects of funding, grants and social investment.
We provide borrower-focused advice for organisations in relation to funding, grants and social investment. Funding contracts, particularly those entered into with local authorities, can be very lengthy and full of unnecessary clauses and legal jargon. Our specialist finance solicitors can guide your organisation through the process of entering into funding contracts and can negotiate the best possible terms for your organisation, advising upon their effect.
We make sure you understand the difference between the types of funding, grants and social investment opportunities available to you and work with you to ensure you are aware, and manage the risk, of long-term finance arrangements.
As trusted legal advisers, our experienced finance solicitors embed themselves within our clients’ organisations to understand their issues and to find a resolution. We seek to work in partnership with you and to build long-term relationships.
