Not-for-Profit Law

Not-for-Profit Law

The not-for-profit sector is the lifeblood of our collective society, representing the highest aspirations of our communities. It should be no surprise, then, that our attorneys have more than 60 years of combined experience working with not-for-profits, both as volunteers and as their legal counsel. 

Despite the obvious benefits that come with having non-profits in our community, New York State and the Internal Revenue Service can make operations difficult by way of a quagmire of regulations. We help our non-profit clients navigate that quagmire.

We apply our experience in labor and employment law to resolve management and staff issues, including terminations, personnel policies, wage and hour claims, claims of discrimination, executive compensation and employment agreements. 

Often conflicts in these areas can be resolved through forms of mediation, and we certainly pursue that avenue. But when necessary we will aggressively defend and advance our client’s claims in the courthouse.

We serve as counsel to boards of directors, where we advise on a variety of issues, including governance, restructuring and compliance. And we have worked on numerous mergers and affiliations between non-profits who have seen the advantage in shared services.

We further handle contracts with vendors, real estate including Padovan hearings, grants, audits, due diligence and partnerships with affordable-housing developers.
