The lawyers at Monaghan P.C. help nonprofit clients with every important issue related to starting a non-profitorganization, and securing and maintaining their tax exemptions, including organizational structure, regulatory compliance, and corporate governance issues that involve fiduciary duties and officer-director liability. Our in-depth experience with non-profit entities addresses such specialized issues as the conversion of healthcare providers from non-profit to for-profit status, the operation of for-profit subsidiaries, the application of charitable trust law, and the proper structure and responsibilities of board audit committees and the setting up of family private foundations. We also provide litigation representation if the need arises.


There are many issues in the process of establishing and operating a non-profit organization. Good legal counsel is absolutely essential for a successful tax-exempt entity. This requires a lawyer who has received detailed information from the proposed non-profit organization, along with detailed information regarding the entity’s purpose and organization. There are restrictions on the activities of tax-exempt organizations that, if violated, can lead to the revocation of the tax-exempt status.


At Monaghan P.C., we enjoy working with non-profit organizations and their management. We make every effort to provide knowledgeable and responsive service at a reasonable cost. Contact us for assistance with your non-profitlegal needs.
