Non-Profit Organizations

Ed Mullen represents non-profit organizations in all aspects of formation, and he has advised non-profits on many governance and policy issues, including the permissible scope of legislative advocacy and political activity. He has also represented non-profits in Board disputes and dissolution proceedings.

Ed works with founders of non-profits to draft By-laws, create Boards of Directors, adopt Board policies, incorporate under state law, apply for federal 501(c)(3) status, register with state agencies, and protect intellectual property, including acquiring trademarks for non-profit names and logos. Ed not only advises non-profit clients on the applicable legal issues and requirements, but also he takes a holistic approach to his legal counseling that incorporates operational best practices to make sure his non-profit clients have a solid foundation for success.
