Paley Rothman’s attorneys help a wide range of nonprofit organizations to navigate the increasingly complex federal and state regulations affecting them. Our clients include trade associations, public charities, private foundations and supporting organizations. We help these tax-exempt groups to secure and maintain their tax-exempt status while simultaneously ensuring that they avoid prohibited transactions, self-dealing and other activities that may jeopardize their tax-exempt status, or result in the imposition of excise taxes.
The attorneys in Paley Rothman’s nonprofit group are intimately familiar with the IRS and the Internal Revenue Code and work closely with the tax group to ensure that clients receive counsel of the highest quality regarding formation of nonprofits, securing tax-exempt status, general tax advice, and IRS audits or tax controversies.
Our close collaboration with Paley Rothman’s other practices equips us to provide the highest caliber of counsel on general corporate matters. These include governance issues and liability of key personnel, contracts and severance agreements, representation in litigation or negotiation matters, leases, real estate transactions, banking relationships, regulatory compliance issues, personnel practices and procedures, executive compensation, qualified and non-qualified retirement plans and employee benefits.
We also understand the unique issues affecting private foundations. As counsel, we help foundations to meet minimum distribution requirements, create effective grant agreements, handle disqualifying investments, and, when necessary, negotiate family management.
