The Nonprofit Organizations Practice Group works closely with leaders of nonprofit entities to serve as advocates and counselors in pursuing each organization's public mission.
Our nonprofit clients include hospitals and other healthcare providers, educational institutions, energy cooperative corporations, trade and professional associations, advocacy groups, private foundations, charitable trusts, social welfare organizations and other types of nonprofit and charitable organizations.
Our team understands that nonprofit entities face unique legal issues throughout their corporate existence. We guide entities through the tax-exempt application process, as well as ongoing tax compliance issues. We counsel organizations on nonprofit corporate governance, employment and compensation issues, mergers and other business transactions, tax-exempt financing and the wide range of healthcare regulatory and other regulatory issues that, if unattended, can expose nonprofits to costly investigations and government-imposed penalties.
Our multi-disciplinary practice group includes a former Tennessee Attorney General and experienced attorneys from across the firm's practice groups, including Corporate & Securities, Employee Benefits, Healthcare, Labor & Employment, Litigation & Dispute Resolution, Public Finance, Tax, and Trusts & Estates.
