Proper formation of a tax-exempt charitable organization is heavily regulated by the IRS. Our team of experienced attorneys helps nonprofits with overcoming the burdens of formation and with the operation of tax-exempt entities through proper planning and the structuring. Our nonprofit-entity attorneys are adept with governance issues and have significant experience in advising nonprofit entities in avoidance of conflicts of interest and self-dealing, as well as in the permitted scope of operations. Using corporate documents containing appropriate provisions for tax-exempt status, our nonprofit-entity team helps our clients with application for the IRS tax-exempt status, monitoring activities of the governing board, ensuring compliance with government and internal corporate requirements, executive compensation, and other operational issues to help them meet their charitable goals.

Operational Agility Services
Often executives cite operational agility as a key competitive differentiator in their business; however, a company’s ability to succeed is often burdened by legal challenges that arise from short-term decisions made in the absence of legal counsel. The business attorneys at Filippov Law Group understand the need to meet changing customer and business requirements with swift, informed action. With growth at the top of the agenda, companies must ensure that their current contracts and company policies and procedures provide the maximum protections and clarity for executing a growth strategy.
