STRATEGIC LEGAL ADVICE FOR CREATIVE ENTREPRENEURS, SMALL BUSINESSES, AND NONPROFITS.

Services

How can we help you succeed?

Business Formation

Starting something new?  We can help you set it up.  From partnerships, limited liability companies, corporations, to nonprofits, we can walk you through the process and help get you to your launch.

Nonprofit Law

It can be a challenge to navigate and comply with all of the legal requirements for tax-exempt organizations.  From corporate governance to lobbying, fundraising, organizational policies and procedures, reporting, grantmaking, and beyond, we can help take the worry out of compliance, so your nonprofit can focus on fulfilling its mission.

Corporate Law

You’ve got your business up and running, but there are ongoing corporate governance issues to deal with.  Need help with your corporate meeting minutes and resolutions, updating bylaws, or amending your operating agreement? 
We can provide it.

Business Transactions

Vendor contracts, independent contractor agreements, non-disclosure agreements, licensing agreements, partnership agreements – these are just a few common examples of contracts that you may need to operate and protect your organization or business.  We can help draft, review, and negotiate on your behalf and make sure you understand what you’re signing.

Special Projects

You’re working on exciting things and we want to help. Planning an event? We can review venue and vendor contracts, assess insurance needs, manage risk, and even help keep it sustainable. Conducting a social media contest? We can draft the official rules and help navigate the laws that regulate sweepstakes, contests, and lotteries. Producing a video?  We can help ensure that your content is properly licensed and cleared.

Outside General Counsel

Your organization or company is growing and has more consistent legal needs.  For a flat monthly fee, we can serve as your go-to outside general counsel and provide you with guidance to meet your day-to-day legal needs.

PRICING

We understand that nonprofits and small businesses operate on a tight budget.  Hourly legal fees can add up to an unexpectedly large legal bill, which can be problematic for budgeting and your bottom line.  That’s why we offer reasonable hourly rates, flat-rate quotes, and payment plans for our services.  Contact us to receive a quote today.

  • International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality.  It has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. It is not country, group or organization specific.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One of my favorite women of all time is US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.  She is definitely one to be celebrated on IWD, as a trailblazer for women in this country who has fought her entire career to level the playing field between men and women … and for people of all cultures, races, abilities, orientations, identities, backgrounds, and walks of life. #notoriousrbg⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Sure, if you use a smartphone to keep the time and serve as your alarm clock, it automatically adjusts to daylight savings ending, but don’t you still need to mentally prepare for one hour less sleep?  I sure do!  Plus, there’s all those other clocks around you that don’t automatically update and you’ll probably live at least a few days with them on the wrong time... ⏰⏰⏰⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Daylight savings is ending, which means spring is near!  Bring on the warmer weather. 🌸🌼🌺⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • As the 2020 election cycle continues to ramp up, it’s important for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations to abide by the IRS’s prohibition on political campaign activity by 501(c)(3)s. Failing to observe this prohibition may result in the organization’s loss of tax-exempt status, so it is important to understand the rules and to comply! Know what is considered political campaign activity to know what is permitted and what is not. 501(c)(3)s can still be active and involved, but should proceed with caution. If in doubt, get an opinion of legal counsel! In the meantime, here are a few things to keep in mind:
.
🧩No direct or indirect participation or intervention in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office.
.
🧩Not all tax-exempt organizations have the same prohibition. Organizations that are tax-exempt under 501(c)(4) or another Internal Revenue Code section may be permitted to conduct political campaign activity. 501(c)(3)s should be wary of partnering with these organizations because their activities may stray into 501(c)(3) prohibited territory.
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🧩Single-issue organizations (e.g., an organization that only advocates on climate change) should be careful in their messaging during the election cycle when their issue is a wedge issue between candidates in a race, so as to not inadvertently signal support for one candidate over another. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🧩Certain voter education activities (e.g., public forums and publishing voter education guides) conducted in a non-partisan manner do not constitute prohibited political campaign activity. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🧩Get out the vote (GOTV) activities may be permitted if they are conducted in a non-partisan manner. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These are just a few factors to consider when planning and executing your 501(c)(3) activities during an election cycle (there are many!). Facts are important, so be sure to get specific advice about your activities if you are unsure if they are compliant!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Over the past few years, DC has gained a reputation for being one of the best cities in the US for women entrepreneurs. Women here in the DC area have been purposefully building the ecosystem to better support women entrepreneurs and especially women entrepreneurs of color.  This snowball has been rolling for a while now and it appears to be gaining more momentum.  Who knew that women helping women would be so empowering?  Oh ya, women.  We are past the days where only a handful of spots are given to women, thanks to the drive and ambition of women who have broken barriers in the past few decades and demanded equal treatment.  There’s plenty of room for everyone and while there’s more work to be done, we cannot deny that we are in a better place than past generations.  We can get more done if we help each other.  The more you help, the more you realize your power to help the world.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
