Outside General Counsel
We serve as Outside General Counsel to select nonprofit organizations, offering general advice at discounted hourly rates and our Quarterly Compliance Report Program, a quarterly review of organizational compliance with state, federal and internal requirements and best practices. General advice typically includes contract drafting and review, contract administration, general employee and contractor issues and regulatory compliance.
We specialize in forming California nonprofit public benefit and religious corporations. Our flat fee formation services take you from start to finish through the formation process, beginning with selecting a name for your nonprofit and the filing of your articles of incorporation through its bylaws and appointment of officers and directors and receipt of your state and federal tax exempt status.
We provide strategic advice to innovative nonprofits and trend-setting social entrepreneurs primarily in the areas of sustainability, product or program diversification, branding, capitalization models, strategic planning and business model design and development. Our goal: value exceeding the costs of our services.
