Broad experience in municipal, zoning, planning, preservation easement and environmental law through its municipal clients, provides H&W with unique ability to represent its non-municipal clients in these same areas as applicants, homeowners and business people.

Not for Profit

H&W partners routinely serve as counsel to and members of the boards of directors of numerous not-for-profit organizations and have expertise in all aspects of related legal guidance and corporate governance. H&W can incorporate and form not-for-profit organizations (whether formed as corporations or charitable trusts) and guide the client in obtaining tax exempt status as well in complying with additional federal and state governmental filing requirements. H&W’s business organizations and trusts and estates experts work closely with the not-for-profit clients, whether in setting up the organization, in assisting in structuring the transfer and distribution of assets, in addressing the legal issues that arise in the course of the day-to-day operations of the entity, and even in the disposition of assets and winding down if ultimately dissolution is desired. Our range of clients in this area includes private schools, museums, libraries, historical preservation societies, land conservancies, religious corporations, cemetery associations, civic associations, private-public governmental partnerships, historic house associations, as well as private and public family charitable trusts and foundations.
