Nonprofit Law and Tax-Exempt Organizations

Our lawyers have a strong commitment to providing specialized legal advice and services to nonprofit and tax-exempt organizations. Our vast experience includes providing advice concerning the formation, governance, and operation of nonprofit corporations and other forms of charitable and tax-exempt organizations. We counsel clients about obtaining and maintaining tax-exempt status, private foundation status, unrelated business income, fiduciary duty issues, and a wide variety of federal, state, and local tax compliance matters.  We also provide advice concerning charitable giving and fundraising, institutional affiliations, restructurings, reorganizations, and the conduct of day-to-day business activities.
