Benefits of a Nonprofit Lawyer For Contracts and Leases
Through every stage of running a nonprofit, you are going to encounter leasing and contractual issues. Leases can include everything from the lease for your nonprofit organization’s headquarters to temporary leases for special events. Your employees and volunteer staff may need to be under contract. Contracts and leases are legally binding so you want to make sure of what you are signing and what you are asking others to agree to.
Also, your contracts and lease documents may be essential in establishing your articles of incorporation and your board resolutions, being in compliance with tax issues, and other financial and operational matters. Lastly, in the unfortunate event that your organization must file for bankruptcy, the nonprofit’s board may have to consider any continuing obligations pursuant to contracts and leases. This includes cases of Chapter 7 and Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
With all contracts and leases, however, there is a myriad of other issues that you, as the founder or manager of the nonprofit, need to consider, including:
• Considering contracting and leasing trends in your community
• Identifying all possible risks
• Negotiating and/or drafting contracts and leases
• Identifying or establishing key contract or lease provisions
• Payment terms of the contract or lease
• Intellectual property payment and ownership
