At the start of 2013, Assist Social Capital changed our status from being a company limited by guarantee with charitbable status to become a Community Interest Company. This had never been done before in Scotland so we needed expert advise to help us chart a way through this situation. We received fantastic support from Senscot Legal. Karina McRitchie’s knowledge of social enterprise was critical, allowing her to liaise with OSCR and the CIC Regulator on our behalf in a process previsouly untested. Senscot Legal has also renewed our company policies ensuring they are up to date and in line with new laws and regulations, which took a huge weight off our team.

I cannot praise Senscot Legal highly enough, their professionallity, deep understanding of social enterprise and the ability to communicate effectively with non-legal people, which makes them a briliant resource for the third sector in Scotland. We will definitely be working with them in the future for advice on contracts and setting up trading arms, etc.
