Our experienced funding solicitors provide support and guidance to social enterprises on the legal aspects of funding, grants and capital.
At Anthony Collins Solicitors our funding solicitors work in partnership with social enterprises to provide focused advice in relation to funding, grants and social investment. We work with you to ensure that when it comes to entering into funding contracts you negotiate the best possible terms, understand the effect they may have on your organisations and can navigate the legal complexities of applying for funding.
Our advice covers all areas of funding, grants and capital, including share issues, community bonds and grant agreements, as well as the more commercial-funding arrangements with lenders or investors of all kinds. We can also conduct a review of your constitution to ensure that you’re able to take the funding that you’re seeking, as well as assess any community-share offer document to ensure compliance.
We appreciate that, as with many social enterprises, this may be the first time you have applied for funding, grants or capital. We will work together with you to guide you through each step of the process to make it as quick and as hassle-free as possible.
When applying for funding, grants or capital, we will make sure you understand the difference between the types of funding, bonds, private placements, grants and social-investment opportunities available to you and work with you to ensure you are aware of and manage the risk of long-term finance arrangements.
If your organisation is looking to invest or make grants, then we can advise on the requirements that you have to meet, particularly if you are a charity, including the requirements of Charity Commission guidance.
