Social Enterprises

The attorneys at Bea & VandenBerk enjoy finding creative solutions to the legal issues affecting social innovators and entrepreneurs. Throughout the formation process, we provide counsel to individuals and organizations on the most appropriate legal structure for their social enterprise. We educate our clients on the legal implications of forming L3Cs, benefit corporations, flexible and social purpose corporations, and hybrid entities so that they can make the most informed decision. We help our clients choose a legal structure that highlights their charitable purposes and maximizes their marketing strategy. Once a social enterprise is up and running, we routinely advise on governance matters, state and federal compliance issues, and corporate restructuring decisions.
