Governance and Management
Ober|Kaler understands that a nonprofit organization’s ability to maintain its reputation and fulfill its mission depends upon a governance structure that works.
The attorneys in our Nonprofit Organizations Group help clients establish – and maintain – the bylaws, policies and procedures that help ensure efficient, ethical and effective governance. Upholding these standards is a high priority and is critical to a nonprofit organization’s ability to earn and keep the trust of its members, supporters, communities and other constituencies.
Ober|Kaler’s experience with the vast spectrum of nonprofit organizations allows us to provide numerous legal services designed to help directors, trustees, officers and others address the many organizational, regulatory and procedural challenges of governing and managing today’s nonprofit organizations. We provide counsel relating to a variety of governance issues, including:
- Fiduciary duties
- Conflicts of interest
- Policies (including conflicts of interest, whistleblower, document retention, gift acceptance and joint venture policies)
- Strategic planning
- Committees and committee structure
