Nonprofit & Religious Organizations


OUR Practice
Highly regarded as a trusted adviser; and advocate for nonprofit and religious organizations, Stradley Ronon addresses the challenges and obstacles that nonprofits face helping them achieve their missions. We represent tax-exempt organizations of all of all stripes – religious organizations, colleges and universities, charter schools and other educational institutions, health care and social services agencies, and others serving the community – regarding the myriad legal issues that arise throughout their life cycles.

We recognize that each client is unique and tailor our approach to each client’s distinct needs. Our practice is regional, national and international in terms of clients and reach. We serve nonprofits worldwide, collaboratively with Meritas, a professional global alliance of more than 175 law firms.

OUR Approach

With nearly 90 years of experience, we understand the legal, business, practical and political challenges nonprofits face and are skilled at resolving them.

Our team is deep and broad, comprising of lawyers from numerous disciplines whose common focus is to help our clients solve real problems and prevent new ones. As recognized thought leaders, our attorneys are sought out by the media and others serving the religious and nonprofit sectors to educate and comment on significant developments in the field.

Personally as well as professionally engaged in the nonprofit world, our lawyers serve on nonprofit boards in communities where we live and beyond. In these roles, we have gained practical experience and a stakeholder’s perspective on organizational and financial issues, enabling us to better serve our clients with tailor-made solutions.

Meeting Your Challenges
Beyond the many legal problems all entities confront in today’s business and legal environment, nonprofits face unique transactional issues; structure and governance concerns; tax challenges; church-state matters; and insurance, regulatory and land-use issues. Whether advising a religious institution on a sensitive church-state matter, counseling a charter school on a sophisticated real estate deal or guiding a private foundation through a complex tax issue, we have the experience needed to resolve matters effectively and cost-efficiently.
