Charities & Not-for-Profits


We have a long history of helping charities and not-for-profit organizations (NPOs) achieve their goals. We routinely advise on the initial organization of charities and NPOs, charitable status applications, compliance with applicable companies and taxation statutes and corporate governance matters that uniquely impact these entities.

We have significant experience advising on complex restructuring of charities, NPOs and other tax-exempt organizations. We regularly assist these organizations in advancing their rights to charitable bequests as set out in donors’ wills. We also prepare agreements between donors and funders.

We work with our business, taxation and securities lawyers to provide you with a single source of comprehensive legal representation delivered with our signature premium client service.
