Legal Services for Nonprofits
Ellen Lubell provides services that encompass the full lifecycle of non-profits. From establishing corporate entities and obtaining recognition of tax-exempt—501(c)(3)—status, to charitable fundraising, regulatory compliance and, if necessary, reorganization or dissolution, she has the depth of experience required to assist a wide range of non-profit boards and managers.
Non-profits today face a myriad of state and federal regulations that affect their activities. Ellen offers expert, practical advice on regulatory compliance relating to governance, private benefit transactions, Sarbanes-Oxley, maintenance of tax-exempt status, Written Information Security Program or "WISP" policies, fundraising, lobbying, and political activities.
Ellen assists clients in developing business strategies and negotiating transactions, many involving intellectual property protection and licensing. The firm's clients have included universities, health care providers, museums, libraries, academic journals, religious and environmental organizations, and scientific societies, as well as individuals involved with these institutions. With years of experience as in-house counsel, Ellen is particularly skilled on issues relating to government and foundation grants, liability and risk management, and conflicts of interest.
