Clear Collaborative Counsel
for 501(c)(3) Organizations

At C3 Legal, we have more than 45 years of combined experience supporting the unique needs of 501(c)(3) organizations. We are lawyers driven by a passion for the philanthropic sector. We offer our clients top-notch legal knowledge, efficiency, and creativity. We believe our clients deserve the clear, collaborative counsel that we are uniquely positioned to deliver.



The laws governing 501(c)(3) organizations are among the most complex around. Overlooked issues can divert time and resources to costly audits and investigations. We have deep experience translating the rules in practical ways that help our clients not only understand them, but also understand how they may apply in future situations. This clarity positions our clients to put their missions first, confident in the compliant structures they have built.



We represent some of the nation’s largest foundations and charities. We also represent smaller, local organizations. Our approach to our practice remains the same regardless of size: mutual respect, commitment to mission, and genuine collaboration.



We’re passionate about representing nonprofit organizations. We often say that we live vicariously through the amazing work of our clients … and we mean it! Organizations in formation, dissolution, or anywhere in between will find that we have the deep knowledge and technical skills necessary to support them where they are, and to help guide them to where they want to be.
