Meeting the Legal Needs of Public Sector/Not-For-Profit Entities
Founded over 30 years ago, KDV provides innovative and cost-effective solutions to help nonprofit entities meet the challenges of the 21st century. Our legal team represents nonprofit corporations, charitable trusts, trade associations, professional societies, private foundations, advocacy groups, private and public schools, colleges and universities, hospitals, homeowner/condominium associations, and many other types of nonprofit organizations on the wide range of legal issues relating to not-for-profit and charitable operations. Whether we are advising an organization on a discrimination, wrongful termination or other employment-related claim, or defending a board member against allegations of breach of fiduciary duty, negligence or fraud, our attorneys focus on helping clients resolve their legal issues in the most favorable and cost-conscious manner possible.
KDV attorneys pride themselves on being on the cutting-edge of this complex and constantly evolving legal arena. Currently, lawyers in our San Francisco and New York Offices are preparing to take a matter before the Supreme Court of the United States which involves the delicate issue of forced disclosure of donor information sought by the California Attorney General from a non-profit organization. Additionally, practitioners in our New York office recently resolved an ADA discrimination claim brought against a national health organization by a deaf plaintiff alleging an inability to access an online audial training program.
Beyond the provision of legal services, our attorneys actively support and contribute to the important work performed by non-profit and charitable organizations. We hold board and other volunteer positions with various nonprofit entities including local YMCAs, the Children’s Medical Fund, the Visiting Homemaker Home Health Aide Service, community boards and youth organizations.
