New organizations must pay attention to the creation of a workable governance structure, while existing organizations must assure compliance with governing instruments. State attorneys general have become more aggressive in monitoring the operations of charitable entities. Further, in this time of ever accelerating change, organizations often face issues of change in mission, affiliation, merger or even dissolution. Governing documents often must be adjusted to meet new roles or realities.
The Tax-Exempt Organizations practice works with organizations to provide a legal framework for dealing with these issues and works efficiently with organizations to ensure that institutional strength and individual energy is not diverted through legal missteps or other corporate non-compliance.
