Religious Institutions and Nonprofit Entities
Dedicated Colorado Lawyers Assisting Community Organizations
Nonprofit organizations dedicate their valuable resources to serving the members of our community, often with the substantial assistance of numerous volunteers and insufficient staff who must juggle a variety of duties and roles. Nonprofits have many of the same types of issues that for-profit companies have — such as contractual, commercial, real estate, employment and litigation matters — but without a legal department to assist. From our beginning, Robert A. Lees & Associates has provided solid corporate counsel to nonprofit entities on such essential issues as:
- Nonprofit formation
- Due diligence
- Employment issues
- Constitutional rights
- Corporate matters
Formation of Nonprofit Organizations
To gain the tax advantages reserved for nonprofit entities, you must follow specific regulations when forming your nonprofit organization. We guide you through the special procedures for establishing:
- 501(c)(3) entities
- Sporting clubs
- Religious institutions
- Educational institutions
- Professional & Trade organizations
- Children’s organizations
- Medical and health facilities
- Other nonprofit corporations
We Are Dedicated to Helping Nonprofit Groups Thrive
Our team is dedicated to supporting the organizations that make our community a better place. Attorney Robert A. Lees has lectured extensively on important nonprofit topics — including risk management, child protection, security in educational institutions, liability issues and the tax exempt process. In addition, we have presented several seminars on private education and freedom of choice issues concerning private school administrations, charter schools and churches.
In 1995, our law firm won a landmark Pitkin County constitutional and zoning case involving civil rights on both first and fourteenth amendment bases that resulted in an award of more than $300,000. We won a second landmark victory in 2008. This has happened again and again with various governmental agencies.
