Starting a not-for-profit organization presents exciting opportunities and challenges to sponsors and organizers. Our attorneys protect the goals and assets of our not-for-profit clients in such matters as formation, obtaining not-for-profit status, drafting and amending bylaws, real estate transactions, and employment issues.
An example of a non-profit organization that benefited from our knowledge and capabilities was a local community hospital that had inherited a building from a donor. Positioning the non-profit hospital to maximize tax advantages in the process of selling the building, our lawyers continued a relationship that included drafting amendments to the hospital’s bylaws.
Another example of a not-for-profit whose legal affairs have been guided by astute attorneys of Nobile, Magarian & DiSalvo, LLP, is a homeless shelter with more than 100 employees. In addition to employment law counsel, our legal services for this organization have included land use issues and securing zoning variances. For a related team of not-for-profits, Nobile, Magarian & DiSalvo assisted in the purchase of a building, coordinated legal resources necessary for renovation of the structure through historic structure and low income tax credits, and drafted and assisted with corporate formation and by-law development and operations.
