Social Enterprise

    Since the very beginning, our firm has had a deep commitment to doing work that helps our clients create positive change in our community—and around the world.

    There are many great benefits of being in an area so rich in intellectual and social capital. For us, one of the most satisfying is having the opportunity to give entrepreneurs, impact investors, charitable organizations, and private foundations the specialized advice they need to do good in the world.

    In fact, Coblentz has long been the firm organizations turn to for help with their social enterprise goals. And with our substantial experience in the areas of corporate and tax law, intellectual property, and finance, we have developed a unique authority in the area. When they work with us, our clients are able to successfully deploy public, private, and philanthropic investment capital that both generates business and achieves their social, cultural, economic, and environmental objectives.

    Our attorneys also have deep experience in advising clients on sophisticated charitable giving techniques; generating creative structures for novel charitable activities, venture philanthropy, and impact investments; and creating the right vehicle for planned giving and impact investing.
