Non-profit organizations face many challenges in today’s business and legal environment. Increased oversight by federal and state governments, donors, and the public at large require transparency regarding financial and compliance reporting, informed governance by management and accountability for the use of charitable funds.
Recent changes to statutes and regulations governing non-profit organizations, including more stringent rules and accompanying penalties, have increased the importance of understanding and complying with federal and state rules and requirements. Our non-profit clients rely upon us to help them deliver program services, manage operations, and fundraise with the knowledge that they are in compliance both in fact and appearance.
Our non-profit practice group provides a complete range of legal services to all types of non-profit clients and the donors that support them. From governance issues to transactional matters, from regulatory compliance and tax exemption issues to joint ventures and financing—we understand the unique needs of our non-profit clients and have the in-depth knowledge, experience and capacity to meet those needs.
In addition to our knowledge and experience, our attorneys routinely monitor the legislative and regulatory developments affecting non-profits in order to identify and stay informed of changes as they occur. Finally, as a full service firm, we can assist non-profit clients with the whole spectrum of legal issues that they might encounter – such as real estate, intellectual property, public finance, labor and employment, contract negotiation and litigation matters.
