Nonprofit organizations are a vital thread in our social fabric, and the public places a high degree of trust and expectation on them. Those higher expectations bring with them special legal and regulatory obligations, in addition to those that apply equally to for-profit and nonprofit entities.

Our lawyers assist both established nonprofit institutions and start-up social ventures in all aspects of formation, governance and financing. We provide experienced counsel that enables you to achieve your nonprofit mission.
