"Our exempt organizations practice is second to none. No other firm in this region and only a few in the country can offer the range of experience and expertise we have developed in representing exempt organizations for close to thirty years." Ben White, Exempt Organizations Practice Group Leader (Emeritus)

One of the fastest-growing sectors of the U.S. economy, the nonprofit sector, is vast and diverse. With assets measured in the trillions of dollars, tax-exempt organizations include charities, churches, schools, health care organizations, foundations and social welfare organizations, as well as professional and trade associations.

As exempt organizations become an increasingly powerful force in the national economy, their programs and operations are becoming far more complex. They are becoming more sophisticated in their approach to business operations and financial management. They are participating more often in business transactions and interacting more often with for-profit organizations, raising complex tax issues . They are looking for more creative sources of revenue to support their activities, again facing tax consequences in many instances. Additionally, exempt organizations often deal with a variety of problems, such as labor, real estate and intellectual property issues that may have nothing at all to do with taxes.

To operate successfully in this environment, an exempt organization needs attorneys who understand exempt organizations as a whole and can offer strategic advice on the array of tax, business, cultural and political issues that are distinct to them. Alston & Bird can fulfill that need.

Our exempt organizations practice is the largest and most comprehensive in the region. In addition to providing tax lawyers who are among the best in the nation, we call on other experts throughout our firm—in wealth planning, real estate, corporate law, employment, technology, intellectual property, health care, public finance, litigation and environmental law —to provide the most relevant advice, as each client's situation demands.
