Many people may not think that organisations that do good in our community face many legal challenges, but as those who work in these areas know, they often encounter some of the most significant issues.
At Salerno Law, we provide advice to not-for-profits, social enterprises and community groups in various areas of law from document review and advice to internal determinations and external complaints. We also attend and assist with AGMs and investigate endemic allegations of corruption, embezzlement, undue influence and fraud.
Additionally, we often provide advice to these organisations on good governance to assist boards in navigating various issues relating to voting rights, member disputes and generally assisting them to function pursuant to internal and legislative rules.
Moreover, we can also assist you to establish charitable trusts and corporate structures so you can start on one of these organisations to better your community. If you have any questions about this area of law, please contact us to discuss.
