Alexandra Moore is an associate in Nixon Peabody’s M&A and Corporate Transactions and Nonprofit teams. She represents businesses in commercial transactions and advises clients on general corporate matters and corporate governance. Alexandra also advises nonprofit organizations in matters relating to legal requirements and best practices regarding governance and operational issues.
I counsel public and private companies on corporate and business law matters, with a focus on providing strategically drafted agreements, organizational documents, and resolutions.
With the increased level of scrutiny and transparency requirements from the IRS, state charity regulators, and the public, it is more important than ever that nonprofit organizations ensure their governance and operations are legally compliant. I help organizations ranging from the very small to the very large update bylaws and policies to comply with legal requirements and best practices.
Both the IRS and many state charity regulators are using analytics to identify areas of potential noncompliance to start audits and investigations of nonprofit organizations. Many of these are targeted to specific areas, and it is important to have a plan in place to identify what the regulator is looking for and the best way to respond. I work with organizations to guide them through these audits and investigations.
The current climate for nonprofits is unprecedented. Efficient and effective operations are more important than ever. Many nonprofits are working to leverage current assets and seek strategic alliances to ensure continued operations to assist the most vulnerable in society. I work with nonprofits to successfully sell assets and navigate mergers and dissolutions, including working through state charity-approval processes, which have become subject to increased scrutiny.
I assist charities navigate the various rules regarding charitable solicitations in a market that necessitates the use of social media and electronic communications. I also counsel businesses on developing best practices for operating sweepstakes and contests.
The IRS and many charities regulators are now using analytics to review annual filings and identify potential issues. It is critical that organizations have adequate policies and procedures in place to protect against government scrutiny.
