Board And Executive Governance

Starting and operating a business or 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in California means you will be subject to a wide range of state and federal regulations. Although the corporate entity provides some protections from personal liability, violating labor, environmental or fair trade laws can mean every executive and board member may be held liable for damages — including facing criminal charges. Corporations are facing increasing scrutiny from the Internal Revenue Service and California has new corporate requirements as set forth in the California Corporations Code.

Successful business managers and nonprofit executives realize they can't possibly know and understand every regulation. In the East Bay Area, business owners and board members turn to the Mullin Law Firm in Concord and Walnut Creek for sound legal advice and representation. With more than 35 years of business law and litigation experience in both the for-profit and nonprofit arenas, we can review your bylaws, operating agreements and contracts to help you reduce the risks of disputes, litigation and violations of existing laws.
