Nonprofit Organizations

We are with you from the beginning by assisting with the formation and ongoing operations of your nonprofit and providing counsel on structure and governance, employment issues, mergers, acquisitions and affiliations, as well as preparing key organizational documents. We also work with you in securing applicable tax exemptions, relating to federal income taxes, state sales taxes, local property taxes and others.
