Legal Considerations Before Starting a Nonprofit

Jun 13, 2012

To start a new charitable organization, you’ll need more than just a great idea and a dedicated group of people willing to work hard.  There are required legal steps you’ll need to take before you are ready to operate as a nonprofit organization. Laura E. Butzel, a partner in the Tax Exempt Organizations Group at Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler LLP, and Jean L. Tom, an associate also from Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler LLP, discuss the most prominent legal issues nonprofits face when first getting set up.  They prepare you to run your new organization by identifying common obstacles so that you can avoid legal pitfalls in the future.

This program was presented in collaboration with New York Lawyers for the Public Interest.
