Practice Overview

Overview

Our clients are private foundations, public charities, hospitals, colleges and universities, governmental entities and other tax-exempt organizations. We deliver the full range of services for these organizations, whether it is the formation of an entity or providing analysis on partnerships, joint ventures, management contracts and conversion to for-profit status, among others. We organize nonprofit entities, obtain determinations of tax-exempt status, respond to IRS information requests, prepare state and local filings for charitable solicitations and tax exemption, and advise on tax exempt corporate governance. In addition, we assist with intermediate sanctions and private inurement issues, and provide unrelated business income analyses.
