Attorneys from practice groups across our seven offices work together to service private foundations, public charities and other tax-exempt entities in their interactions with members, donors, investors and the government and the public at large. We advise nonprofit organizations, officers, directors, partners, funders and other supporters on both high-stakes and day-to-day matters.
