Religious and Charitable Law
Religious, charitable and nonprofit organizations face many of the same legal situations as for-profit businesses, but they also have special requirements. Berman, Bourns, Aaron & Dembo has represented religious, charitable and other nonprofit groups for many years, and we have in-depth understanding of the unique needs of these organizations.
Our firm has incorporated many churches in Connecticut and assisted boards, clergy members and other responsible parties in understanding their rights and duties as corporate citizens of Connecticut.
Attorney John Berman has gathered knowledge in this field by serving as a counselor to numerous religious organizations, clergy members and other nonprofit institutions. He has served on the Board of Directors of the Connecticut Council for Philanthropy and is President of the Watkinson Prisoners Aid Society.
Many of our attorneys are actively involved with local charitable and non-profit organizations. This gives us insight into the nature of nonprofit operations and allows us to provide proper guidance as both routine and unforeseen legal issues arise.
