3 Things to Know About C3 Legal

Plenty of things set C3 Legal apart – to start, we’re a women-owned, women-led law firm. Our distinctions don’t stop there, however. Read on to learn a little more about us and why our differences matter.

We’re Focused (Really Focused)

Inspired by our mission-driven clients, we launched C3 Legal to focus exclusively on foundation and nonprofit law. We spend our work days – all of them, all the time – navigating the complexities and nuances of the 501(c)(3) rules. We do this so that our clients don’t need to – instead, they can spend their days focused on achieving their missions. Maintaining this intentional focus to our practice helps us deliver exactly what our clients need on these critical issues.   

We’ve Got the Right Experience

We are one of only a few firms across the country that focus exclusively on 501(c)(3) organizations. We have been dedicated to this practice for a combined 45 years of experience, and the three of us have worked together as a team for more than a decade. We have advised clients through sweeping legislative changes, emerging philanthropic trends, audits and investigations, leadership and generational transitions, periods of tremendous growth, and decisions to wind down. Most recently, we’ve helped clients navigate the pandemic and civil unrest, a deepening commitment to equity and racial justice, and countless other transitions. We know that the breadth and depth of what we have seen positions us to help clients tackle what lies ahead.   

We’re Connected Where it Counts

Maintaining our focus means staying true to our strengths and fostering our connections. We are transparent and proactive when a client’s needs exceed our focus – we simply leverage our strong relationships with lawyers in other firms to get clients to the right place for help.  We value and prioritize our deep involvement in the charitable sector – in part, because we love it, and in part because it helps us stay ahead of trends and developments. We look for various ways to serve our communities— including pro bono work, board service, trainings, and convenings because it reflects our values as individuals. And perhaps most importantly, because it makes us better lawyers who better understand the needs of our clients.
