Specialist advice for financing charities and social enterprises

For over 25 years, solicitors at Wrigleys have been advising on the establishment of investments for social purposes. 

Which methods of raising finance do Wrigleys advise on?

Mechanisms available to charities and social enterprises for raising finance include:

  • Bond issues (including providing for a financial return for investors);
  • Renewable energy; and
