Our firm is dedicated to supporting nonprofits in Miami through comprehensive legal services that cover formation, operation, governance, and compliance. We aim to empower your organization to focus on its mission while ensuring legal integrity and operational effectiveness.

Understanding Nonprofit Organizations

Nonprofit organizations are formed for public or community benefit and enjoy various tax advantages. These organizations are eligible to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions and are exempt from paying federal income taxes. However, maintaining this status requires adherence to complex regulations and compliance with specific legal standards.

Services for Nonprofit Organizations

Nonprofit Formation and Structuring: Creating a nonprofit involves careful planning and understanding of the legal landscape. We assist with all aspects of nonprofit formation, including:

  • Choosing the appropriate type of nonprofit entity
  • Drafting and filing Articles of Incorporation
  • Obtaining IRS tax-exempt status under 501(c)(3) or other applicable sections
  • Drafting bylaws and other governance documents

Tax Compliance and Exemption: Maintaining tax-exempt status is crucial for nonprofits. Our team ensures that your organization complies with all IRS requirements, including proper filing of annual returns (Form 990) and adherence to regulations regarding fundraising and income sources.

Governance and Operational Advice: We provide ongoing counsel to nonprofit boards and executive teams on governance issues to ensure compliance with federal and state laws. This includes advising on board structure, fiduciary duties, conflict of interest policies, and overall best practices for nonprofit governance.

Employment Law Compliance: Nonprofits must navigate the complexities of employment law from hiring to termination. We assist with drafting employee handbooks, creating employment contracts, and advising on volunteer-related legal issues, ensuring that your organization meets all legal requirements for managing staff and volunteers.

Fundraising and Grant Compliance: Fundraising is the lifeblood of most nonprofit organizations. We help ensure that your fundraising activities comply with state and federal laws, including registration requirements for soliciting donations and guidelines for acknowledging contributions.

Intellectual Property Protection: For nonprofits that develop proprietary content or programs, protecting intellectual property is key. We guide you through the process of securing trademarks and copyrights to protect your brand and creative works.
