The Advantages of Working with a Non-Profit Organisation Lawyer

Non-profit organisations often have different legal requirements compared to other companies, groups and associations. These requirements vary in the initial foundation of the body, and in its daily management. Working with a standard corporate lawyer will likely involve working with a partner without the specialist insight into this particular sector. However, our team consists of lawyers who will provide you with the clear insight needed when facing German law as a non-profit organisation. Our lawyers will advise you on matters concerning tax exemption status and how to achieve it as a non-profit organisation, we will support you in matters concerning the founding of the non-profit organisation and ensure that the applicable paperwork requirements are fulfilled and will provide insight into the management structures which should be in place in your organisation.

Our lawyers use our offices in Cologne, Düsseldorf and Aachen as well as our facilities in Berlin, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich and Stuttgart to provide assistance nationwide. We deal with regional, national and global clients and provide our legal counsel in English as well as German. Contact us now to start a productive partnership.
