Not-For-Profit Law

Our attorneys have over 60 years of combined experience working with not-for-profits both as volunteers and as clients. The non-profit community is the life blood of our collective society. Despite the obvious benefits from having non-profits in our community, New York State and the Internal Revenue Service make operations difficult with a quagmire of regulations. We help our non-profit clients navigate through the regulations.

We also apply our experience in labor and employment law matters to resolve management and staff issues. These issues include terminations, personnel policies, wage and hour claims, claims of discrimination, executive compensation and employment agreements. Most often conflicts in these areas are resolved through forms of mediation but when necessary we will aggressively defend and pursue 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. We have worked on numerous mergers and affiliations amongst 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.
