Krieg DeVault lawyers understand the legal, organizational and governance challenges that increased regulatory attention has created for nonprofit and tax-exempt organizations. Having served nonprofit organizations as in-house general counsel, senior executive officers, and governing board members and trustees, we have a practical understanding of nonprofit operations that enables us to effectively represent clients before state and federal taxing authorities and regulatory bodies. Hospital and health organizations, public charities, supporting organizations, educational institutions, churches, government entities, and special purpose tax-exempt organizations all seek our help on tax compliance and planning, governance issues, and transactional needs (including acquisition and operation of for-profit entities). We also represent many private foundations and charitable trusts, making sure that their organization and structure meet all Internal Revenue Code requirements for tax-exempt status while accomplishing their specific purposes and objectives. Our goal is to help nonprofit and tax-exempt organizations plan and achieve their financial objectives while maximizing their tax advantages.
