Tax-Exempt Organizations

We routinely handle the issues that impact charitable and other tax-exempt organizations, including corporate governance, charitable giving, government affairs, labor and employment, intellectual property and litigation. In addition, we provide industry-focused, strategic legal advice to our tax-exempt charitable organization clients. Our years of experience and depth of resources directly translates into cost-effective representation.
