Chicago Nonprofit Contracts Attorney
Much like other corporations in Illinois, Contracts and Leases are the fundamental buildings blocks of a successful nonprofit organization. Not only will an effective nonprofit require contracts for staff and volunteers, but it may need to lease property or facilities to serve as the headquarters for the facility. If you’re establishing a nonprofit in the State of Illinois or you need legal guidance and representation regarding your contractual or lease issues, you can benefit from the experience and legal diligence of Chicago’s leading nonprofit law firm, James C. Provenza & Associates, PC.
Benefits of a Nonprofit Lawyer For Contracts and Leases
Through every stage of running a nonprofit, you are going to have to deal with leasing and contractual issues. This includes everything from property, such as the nonprofit’s headquarters, to potential employees and/or volunteer staff. Moreover, your contracts and lease documents may be essential in establishing your articles of incorporation, your board resolutions, tax issues, and other financial and operational matters. Lastly, in the unfortunate event that your organization has to 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
- And more…
