Our experience in education and nonprofit law focuses on the corporate, regulatory, legislative, liability, tax and employment aspects of private secondary and postsecondary education, as well as nonprofit organizations throughout New Hampshire and northern New England.
Since 1987, Rath and Young has represented many of the premier educational institutions in the U.S., as well as a long line of prominent charitable organizations. Our Concord and Boston office attorneys have extensive experience working with nonprofit organizations.
We work on a wide range of matters for schools, colleges and charitable organizations, including:
Known for our leadership and community service, Rath and Young lawyers have volunteered countless hours of service over the years to dozens of educational and other nonprofit boards, ranging from the University System of New Hampshire and the N.H. Historical Society to the United Way, Concord Hospital and various community mental health centers. Many of our attorneys have experience as leaders of state agencies, and, along with our strong government relations affiliation and network, this practical experience enables us to understand and anticipate the impact of economic and legal changes in the nonprofit field and to help clients cost effectively manage these issues.
Our attorneys provide essential and specialized services to a variety of education and nonprofit clients. Our group is supported daily by our corporate, government relations, litigation, tax, regulatory and employment group attorneys in order to address the full range of our clients’ needs.
We provide a full range of support for nonprofits, including overall corporate support, strategic advice, tax advice, and practical advice on shifting risk by contract.
We closely follow both the economic and the legal changes in the field to anticipate and understand the needs of our clients and to provide efficient solutions in compliance with multiple federal and state regulations. We have extensive experience and relationship with both federal and state regulators. If legislation is the best way to solve a problem, we work closely with our government relations group to achieve a legislative solution for our client.
