Nonprofit Legal Issues

Our people have over ten years of experience working in nonprofits and have personally experienced many of the issues that non-profits encounter while striving to fulfill their mission. One area of law we have focused on is the Copyright Act of 1909. This Act still applies to anything created before 1978. Few law firms pay attention to this, but we know that this Act is critical for the many historical and cultural institutions that own materials from this era.  We are also intimately familiar with the legal issues surrounding provenance and left property. With our background, we are in a unique position to help non-profits with their legal issues.
