Reid and Riege has a long history of supporting the state’s nonprofit community. In addition to providing legal counsel, this support has included service on nonprofit boards and giving through the firm’s Reid and Riege Foundation, which was established in 1971. As an extension of its commitment to the community, the firm established one of the most sophisticated and vibrant Nonprofit Organizations practices in the state.
Over the years, our nonprofit clientele has included charitable, religious and educational entities, healthcare providers, social welfare organizations, trade associations, and private clubs. We have worked with nonprofits at all different stages, including well-established nonprofits with a national reputation, new organizations that need assistance turning their charitable goals into an operational reality, and entities that are transitioning or concluding their legal existence. We counsel nonprofit boards and leadership on governance matters and establishing internal policies, as well as the more acute issues such as responding to regulatory investigations, and transactional matters. We assist with operational matters such as negotiation of key contracts, employment and compensation issues, and compliance.
Because nonprofit organizations face a wide array of legal issues, our attorneys within the Nonprofit Organizations Practice Area likewise have experience and skills in many areas, including:
- Corporate and Governance
- Health and Human Services
- Uniform Prudent Management of Institutional Funds Act (UPMIFA)
- Federal and State Regulatory Compliance
- Contract Drafting and Negotiation
- Acquisitions and Mergers
- Affiliations and Joint Ventures
- Real Estate
- Intellectual Property
- Executive Compensation
- Attorney General Investigations
- Equitable Deviation and Cy Pres
The depth of our knowledge and familiarity with the legal needs of the nonprofit sector provides unique value to the clients we serve. That value rests in understanding the challenges faced by nonprofit boards and executive leadership teams, as well as in the research, forms, and checklists the firm has cultivated over the years. The result is that we are able to deliver the highest quality of legal services to the nonprofit community with a level of efficiency that our clients can afford. We take pride in supporting the mission of our clients and making the jobs of those who are dedicated to that mission easier.
