We assist with the formation, entity structuring, and corporate governance matters for California nonprofit corporations, limited liability companies, and limited partnerships, as well as obtaining federal and state income tax-exempt status, and assisting with the welfare exemption for qualified properties. Several of our attorneys act as corporate counsel for non-profit entities and our clients look to us for guidance on an array of legal issues corporations face. We advise corporations on board member responsibilities and the requirements for holding elections and meetings. Our transactional attorneys structure the sale of corporate assets. And because many of our corporate clients are co-ops or provide housing, our attorneys are knowledgeable of the specific rules that “common area developments” must follow under the Davis-Stirling Act.
Occasionally lawsuits happen. Our experienced litigators have assisted our clients with a variety of corporate disputes, including shareholder derivative claims and challenges to major board decisions, the sale of corporate assets, elections, and governance.
