Nonprofit organizations are impacted by the legal issues faced by for-profit businesses, and they must also be aware of the many additional laws that are special to nonprofit organizations. What legal structure should a nonprofit organization have? How do you register your charitable organization? How does your nonprofit organization obtain tax-exempt status from the IRS, and once your organization is tax exempt, how do you maintain that status? Do your leases and contracts protect your organization’s interests? Are your employment policies and practices legal? Are you handling your funds in compliance with the law? What fundraising methods are available to your organization? We can help you understand these issues and give you the advice and legal tools you need to make your nonprofit organization run smoothly.
