Not-for-profits exist to further a particular cause and to provide needed value to the community at large. Often hard pressed for time and resources, organisations cannot be expected to bear the brunt of an increasingly complex legal system.
Legal work often deals with highly sensitive matters and can determine how well an organisation achieves its overarching objective. In the Not-for-profit space – where an organisation’s mission is paramount – trusted legal advisors become all the more important. There is a need for dedicated lawyers who have a vested interest in the survival and prosperity of the organisation.
Legal experts’ knowledge of clients’ needs builds with time. Sustained engagement keeps lawyers on the lookout for tailored ways to help their client and leaves room for feedback and improvement for the length of the relationship.
Protecting the reputation of your organisation can be crucial, particularly given the ease with which comments or publications can be released in an increasingly ‘online’ world. Whilst ordinarily companies with more than 10 employees cannot sue for defamation, a specific exception applies to entities that do not operate for financial gain, as is the case for NFPs. If your NFP organisation believes a person or corporation may have communicated or published material which defames your organisation, you may be able to pursue an action for defamation.
We regularly send out newsletters specific to the NFP sector that showcase NFP industry news as well as our latest insights.
