Social & Solidarity-based Economy
Growth, development and cooperation

The challenges and constraints faced by non-profit organisations, whether financial (e.g. reduction in public funding, research of additional resources), regulatory (e.g. loss or withdrawal of approval, territorial constraints) or related to their activities (e.g. responses to calls for projects), lead them to review their modus operandi and to consider internal or external growth operations or cooperation with other entities.

Cornillier Avocats assists SSE companies in assessing and identifying the tools and levers best suited to their project.

The firm’s goal is to assist in the decision-making process, to provide legal security in all aspects of the company’s project and to provide technical and strategic support to governance and management. In order to ensure the smooth implementation of the company’s project, Cornillier Avocats uses a collaborative methodology by setting up and managing a project team made up of all stakeholders.
