Nonprofit Organizations & Religious Institutions

Placing a focus on purpose.

More than 100 attorneys firmwide regularly counsel tax-exempt clients that range from global entities to local 501(c)(3) organizations, as well as the individuals and entities that interact with them. Our team of nonprofit attorneys tailors creative legal strategies that fit each group’s unique business needs while advancing its mission.

Our law firm's team of nonprofit attorneys handles issues common to tax-exempt organizations, such as formation, compliance, private benefit or inurement, conflicts of interest, sanctions, penalties, loss of tax-exempt status, tax management, outsourcing, joint ventures, financing, real estate transactions, employment and labor issues, litigation and general commercial transactions. We also advise individuals and businesses on the use of private foundations, split interest trusts and other charitable giving techniques designed to maximize tax incentives.
