Obermayer attorneys represent nonprofit and tax-exempt organizations, including public charities, religious and faith-based organizations, private foundations, and nonprofit associations. We help our clients with the sale of assets, mergers, consolidation, division and dissolution, as well as with court-approved transfers of charitable assets and state and federal regulatory proceedings.

Nonprofit clients rely on Obermayer’s attorneys for high quality legal counsel, delivered efficiently and tailored to a client’s unique culture. Our interdisciplinary team regularly handles:

  • Forming new nonprofit corporations and private foundations;
  • Advising on the application of potential excise taxes and relationships with donors;
  • Negotiating charitable gifts from either the donor or donee perspective;
  • Drafting testamentary language, gift agreements, or trusts; and
  • Terminating private foundations or charitable remainder trusts pursuant to their terms or early by agreement.
