Legal Audits

As part of our legal audit services, Nicholson Law Firm will conduct a thorough review of compliance, governance and risk management issues. This may involve evaluation and analysis of corporate formation documents, bylaws, governance policies, tax-exempt status, charitable solicitation requirements, gift administration issues, insurance policies, volunteer and participant waivers, contractual obligations, operating procedures, other federal and state regulations, and future plans. Since, a nonprofit organization should keep accurate and organized files, we will also confirm that legal documents and financial statements are up to date and easy to access. Our legal experience includes church and nonprofit law, governance, insurance, tax exemption, land use, personal injury, business and contract litigation and more so that we can provide a robust portfolio of legal expertise to support your legal audit needs.

Organizations typically consider a legal audit after a costly mistake or in the wake of new leadership, who may want to ensure they are starting with a clean slate. The benefits of a legal audit can bring a sense of reassurance to your leadership team and can also help your nonprofit corporation or church determine whether to continue its current way of conducting business. Nicholson Law Firm can provide expert guidance regarding when a legal audit may be warranted and how to prepare for a legal audit as part of our church and nonprofit law services.

Nicholson Law Firm has provided church and nonprofit law services to many organizations in need of general counsel, mediation and arbitration, formation and incorporation, governance and bylaws, insurance, land use, legal audits, and tax exemption. These services have been provided to churches, religious camps, para-religious nonprofits, private independent schools, and nonprofits focused on youth, veterans, and those in need of food, clothing and shelter. Our law firm provides church, faith-based organization and nonprofit law services in New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Vermont.
