Skilled In Nonprofit and Tax-Exempt Organization Law
Today’s nonprofit and charitable organizations exist in an age where regulations rule. Regulations govern every stage of a nonprofit organization’s life. Regardless of your charity’s size, whether a small startup, an educational institution, a trade association or a multimillion-dollar endowment, it is crucial that your organization is armed with the knowledge and know-how to stay in compliance with government regulations. If led astray, your nonprofit could be assessed stiff penalties or even revocation of nonprofit status.
Despite the need nonprofits have for solid legal advice, few law firms exist, which focus on the law of nonprofit and exempt organizations. The attorneys at Gammon & Grange, P.C., in McLean, Virginia, have decades of experience in helping nonprofits navigate the complex world of state and federal regulations.
