Wiggin and Dana lawyers work actively with tax exempt organizations of all kinds: charitable, health care, educational, religious, social service, economic development, scientific, artistic, and cultural organizations as well as trade associations, social welfare organizations and private foundations.

While their substantive operational activities vary, our clients share a need for sophisticated knowledge and advice on common issues. Our interdisciplinary Practice Group is knowledgeable about their special corporate, governance, tax, giving, and regulatory issues and concerns and works closely with our labor and employment, real estate, litigation, intellectual property, and general corporate lawyers whose services may be needed. And all our tax exempt clients enjoy working with experienced and cost-conscious attorneys who are attuned to their special concerns and needs.
