Crossovers in legal practices

There are many crossovers between the for-profit business world and the nonprofit sector; many of which are very similar and some that are the same. Corporate governance and conforming with the requirements of the Corporations Code are critical for both sectors. When our team works with clients to form a new corporation or limited liability company, whether for-profit or nonprofit, we focus heavily on making sure our clients understand corporate governance so that their liability exposure is significantly reduced or eliminated. We provide our clients with the requisite knowledge needed to navigate the hierarchy of governing documents and positional leadership to allow them to form businesses with smooth-running programs and operations.

When our team drafts or reviews contracts, it is imperative that our clients comprehend the implications of the contract language. When we prepare nondisclosure agreements, purchase and sale agreements, shareholder restriction agreements, or other multi-party agreements, we want our clients to be comfortable with what those agreements achieve, what they mean and how they work within their entities. Corporate bylaws or operating agreements often contain technical or confusing legalese, our office strives to demystify this language and give our clients a good working knowledge of how those documents impact the work their businesses do every day.

Navigating the corporate legal world

When we form entities and file governmental documents with the State of California or the Internal Revenue Service, we want our clients to understand the importance of how to comply with the laws that govern those filings and to have the resources available to them to continue those filings as they move forward. We want them to understand how critical those filings are and how missing them can result in their entity or their tax-exempt status being suspended or revoked.

When we work with nonprofit organizations, we want to ensure that our clients understand the rules and requirements to maintain their good standing with the Secretary of State, the Attorney General’s Office, the IRS, and the Franchise Tax Board. It is so easy to be overwhelmed with all of the reporting and compliance requirements placed upon nonprofit entities, and we want to help our clients manage those requirements without issue. When it comes to property tax exemptions, we want our clients to know how they might inadvertently violate the requirements to maintain those exemptions which would result in their having to pay tens of thousands of dollars of property tax that otherwise they would have been exempt from paying.

How we work with our clients

When we work with boards of directors, we want to help directors and officers understand their rightful roles and responsibilities. We also want to help directors understand the importance of corporate resolutions and the legal implications surrounding them.

And when it comes to business and nonprofit conflicts, whether a breach of contract, legal action brought against someone, or needing to be represented before a governmental entity, we want to assist our clients in knowing their rights and the processes required to win their case.

Ultimately, our mission in working with clients is to positively impact their work for the good of the people they serve. Small and medium business owners and nonprofit leaders alike all desire to impact the lives of other people. Whether they are working in a homeless shelter, providing quality performing arts, engaging in religious work, fixing vehicles, painting houses, or developing medical devices, the clients we serve are working to provide some degree of service to others. So are we!

We work with a variety of business and nonprofit clients throughout the State of California from startups to multi-million-dollar operations. Our clients include Transcendence Theatre Company, Community Child Care Council, Redwood Gospel Mission, recovery programs, churches, and other religious organizations, architecture firms, building contractors and tradesmen, auto industry businesses, property owners, and many others.

We have represented businesses and nonprofit organizations before the IRS, the California Franchise Tax Board, the California Attorney General’s Office’s Registry of Charitable Trusts, the Secretary of State, and in Family Court, Probate Court, and Civil Court. We are leaders in the nonprofit legal world and are recognized experts with the Global Center for Nonprofit Excellence.

We have a passion for business and nonprofit entities and would love to help you with yours!
