Bashian & Papantoniou’s attorneys have extensive experience in, and provide legal advice on all aspects of, creating not-for-profit organizations and guiding our clients through the complex process of applying for recognition of exemption from federal income taxation under section 501(c) of the Internal Revenue Code (including assessing whether a new organization may qualify as a 501(c)(3) charity or another type of tax-exempt organization and preparing and submitting for approval the necessary exemption applications to all governmental agencies). In addition, we consult our clients through corporate governance issues, recruiting and retaining highly skilled employees for their not-for-profit organizations, and continuing compliance with state and federal laws relating to not-for-profit organizations.  Our attorneys provide guidance for board of directors and sit on the board of directors of not-for-profit organizations.

Setting up compliant not-for-profit organizations can be a complicated task.  Our firm helps our not-for-profit clients through the long journey of creating and maintaining compliant not-for-profit organizations.
