Nonprofit and Charitable Organizations

Our attorneys are experienced and well qualified to handle the many organizational and ongoing operational needs of nonprofit organizations.

From initial organization at the state level to IRS recognition of tax exempt status, nonprofit organizations face myriad and ever growing state and federal regulatory and operational requirements. For nearly 30 years, our attorneys have worked to form a wide variety of nonprofit organizations, including the drafting and filing of the initial organizational documents at the state level, preparation of bylaws, state attorney general registration, and the preparation and filing of IRS applications for recognition of tax exempt status.

Once organized, we provide ongoing advice and counsel to our nonprofit clients, including several churches and schools, in order to meet their practical, and sometimes unique, needs and circumstances. From employment matters to transactional documents, governance issues and, when necessary, litigation, our attorneys have the depth of experience to provide the answers and solutions you need.

And our involvement with nonprofit organizations doesn’t end there. Many of our attorneys give of their time to personally serve on the boards of a variety of nonprofit organizations. By doing so, they gain practical and invaluable insight into how nonprofits work in the real world. Inevitably, lessons learned and experience gained in nonprofit board rooms are then reflected in the advice and counsel we are called upon to give.
