Finding the Right Legal Structure for UK Social Entrepreneurs

A team of London-based Morrison & Foerster attorneys assisted Thomson Reuters Foundation and UnLtd, the leading provider of support to social entrepreneurs in the UK, with developing the “UK Social Venture Structuring Guide.” The interactive guide was built to help social entrepreneurs in the UK determine the best legal structure for their social venture. Through a series of 12 questions, the guide highlights advantages and disadvantages of different structures and helps social entrepreneurs pick the best structure based on a variety of factors, including size, type of financial backing, planned ownership or membership, and tax implications.
