A new partnership which will support businesses in forming their social responsibility plans has been launched by two Birmingham companies.
Law firm mfg Solicitors and business consultancy Oaks, both based in the Jewellery Quarter, have linked up to work with businesses across the region within the sport, education, public and third sectors.
Experts from both firms will work closely with socially-minded businesses to explore their income generation potential - helping them to form new charitable vehicles and partnerships to capitalise on commercial opportunities.
Sam Pedley, partner at mfg Solicitors said: “We’re excited to have entered into this new partnership with Oaks as they have an excellent track record in providing consultancy to sports and educational institutions, local authorities and the private sector. We’re looking forward to supporting them in helping organisations make a genuine social impact.”
Rahul Bissoonauth, director of business development at Oaks added: “Moving into the Jewellery Quarter earlier this year has presented so many opportunities to partner with like-minded businesses in the area. mfg has demonstrated a commitment to supporting organisations with a social purpose and we’re thrilled to be working together to help our clients explore their income generation potential.”
mfg Solicitors has just celebrated its first year in Birmingham after merging with Jewellery Quarter practice, Pearson Rowe. The 37-partner firm also has offices spread across Worcestershire and Shropshire.
Oaks was formed in 2008 and recently joined the Aquila Services Group – a group of socially focussed management consultancies. Helping organisations to generate new income, their clients include international sport-for-development charities, Premier League football clubs, national sports governing bodies and schools.
