As a distinct group within a large law firm, our Exempt Organizations
Practice is unique. We offer our clients—tax-exempt organizations (private foundations, public charities, social welfare organizations), as well as the governing boards of, and donors to, these organizations—advice from a dedicated team that also successfully collaborates with lawyers in other practice areas at the Firm.
Our endowment advisory practice is an important part of our Exempt Organizations Practice. Junior associates help to advise clients with respect to their complex alternative investments, as well as their “program-related” and “mission-related” investments. They work with senior associates to regularly advise clients with respect to not-for-profit/for-profit joint ventures and similar relationships. Junior associates also work on international philanthropic matters involving U.S. organizations operating abroad, the U.S. operations of foreign charities, and “American Friends of” organizations making grants outside the United States. In addition, businesses turn to our Exempt Organizations group for assistance with structuring and implementing corporate philanthropy programs.
