We have represented many of the nonprofit and tax-exempt organizations that have shaped the Southwest for decades.
We have represented many of the nonprofit and tax-exempt organizations that have shaped the Southwest for decades. Now more than ever, tax-exempt organizations face a high level of regulation and scrutiny. Escalating oversight from the IRS, Congress, state regulators, watchdog groups, and the media require nonprofit leaders to run a gauntlet of changing law and regulations. At the same time, tax-exempt organizations are expected to be more transparent than ever before and to adhere to evolving best practices.
We are committed to representing nonprofit and tax-exempt clients on a daily basis, not as a side practice. Our ERISA practitioners have extensive experience in advising Nonprofits with respect to issues associated with establishment and ongoing operation of 403(b), 457(b) and 457(f) plans. Our depth and collective years of experience representing nonprofit and tax-exempt organizations is unsurpassed in the Mountain West.
The nonprofit and tax-exempt sector is broad and diverse and our clients reflect that diversity. Our tax-exempt and nonprofit clients include community and other grant-making foundations; hospitals and healthcare providers; health and human services charities; animal welfare organizations; national and international trade associations; churches and other religious institutions; arts organizations and museums; public, private and charter schools; colleges and universities; supporting organizations; social welfare organizations; organizations involved in lobbying and political activities; veterans organizations; and tribal and governmental entities.
Our attorneys also advise individual clients regarding their charitable gifts including drafting complex gift agreements such as endowment gifts, naming rights gifts, and charitable remainder trusts and charitable lead trusts.
Our Nonprofit and Tax-Exempt Organizations practice group includes members of Best Lawyers in America®, Southwest Super Lawyers®, the American College of Tax Counsel and the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel. The partners in the practice are “AV” rated attorneys by Martindale Hubbell (the highest rating available), which signifies substantial experience and recognition by one’s peers for professional accomplishment.
