There have been important legal developments at the federal and state levels for nonprofit organizations.
We assist U.S. nonprofits in their endeavors around the world and are unique in providing them with on-the-ground guidance on their China operations from our Beijing office. Our firm represents both smaller nonprofits as general counsel and larger nonprofits on projects, issues and disputes, tailoring services to meet the singular needs of every kind and size of nonprofit. Pillsbury lawyers advocate for nonprofit organizations of all types and advise on and resolve disputes for them involving the full range of issues they face, including:
Pillsbury is highly attuned to clients’ needs for the very highest quality legal assistance tailored to budget-conscious, volunteer-governed, risk-averse nonprofit organizations.
Developed ethics code and procedures for national medical specialty society and then obtained FTC advisory opinion approval; the code and process are now the standard for other nonprofits.
Assisted international trade association that operates a “top ten” exposition in the United States in acquiring a major industry exposition in Europe and starting up another in Asia.
Advised a statewide veterans’ organization in aiding formerly homeless veterans who qualified for subsidized housing by providing free furniture and housewares, benefitting thousands of recipients.
Our core group focused exclusively or extensively on nonprofit clients, supported by more than 50 specialty-area lawyers, has advised on nearly 70 separate mergers, consolidations or other combinations of national nonprofit organizations.
For more than 10 years, a Pillsbury partner has keynoted the nation’s premier nonprofit law event, ASAE’s Legal Symposium; others speak regularly at ABA and ACC events.
A Pillsbury partner literally “wrote the book” on nonprofit organization law: The Association Law Handbook: A Practical Guide for Associations, Societies, and Charities, published by ASAE, the 24,000-member “association of associations.”
