Unique Issues For Nonprofits

Nonprofit organizations have unique legal needs. We help our nonprofit organization clients with the following:

• Evaluating the organizational goals and anticipated business activities to identify the most appropriate nonprofit structure
• Establishing and creating the appropriate business structure with respect to the organization’s qualifications for tax-exempt status under 501(c)(3) or any of the other tax
exempt statuses of the Internal Revenue Code
• Providing assistance with any compliance requirements, including any filings needed to maintain your organization’s nonprofit status
• Providing advice, assistance and support with respect to various business relationships to ensure equitable business partnerships and collaborations
Negotiating and securing any legal contracts necessary for the organization’s business relationships and collaborations.

As a business, nonprofit organizations are also interacting with for-profit businesses on a regular basis. In any business landscape, conflicts can arise. While we focus our legal services and advice on providing high-quality legal support in the early phases of a business entity in order to preempt conflict, there might be times when a nonprofit organization will need to protect its rights. We are also fully prepared to effectively and efficiently help our clients navigate conflict through dispute resolution, even if that requires litigating the matter in court.
