For non-profits, mission is paramount. It determines the population to be served, the manner in which services are delivered, and the social benefits generated and achieved.
Our attorneys counsel clients in how best to attain their goals through effective and sustainable management and an understanding of the distinctive compliance duties relevant to tax-exempt nonprofits.
We provide services including formation of not-for-profit entities and foundations; attainment and preservation of tax-exempt status bylaws; governance and board issues; compensation and benefits; for-profit subsidiaries and affiliations; and sophisticated not-for-profit tax issues.
Our goal is to assist nonprofit organizations with enhancing their operations from startup through development and maturity. While we understand that compliance with federal, state, and local laws and regulations is crucial to success, our attorneys also counsel on best practices in nonprofit governance and helping boards understand their fiduciary duties in providing meaningful supervision to their organizations.
