Laura Roethel is a paralegal supporting the Nonprofit Corporations team of Nixon Peabody. She assists attorneys throughout the firm representing our nonprofit clients.
Under the supervision of licensed attorneys, I focus on assisting clients navigate through state and federal laws applicable to nonprofit organizations.
I assist with the incorporation of nonprofit organizations, including hospitals and other health care facilities, economic development corporations, educational institutions and other charitable giving and grant making organizations.
Working directly with the IRS and state agencies, I coordinate and obtain regulatory approvals on behalf of our nonprofit clients, including federal and state tax-exemptions applicable to the organization, corporate dissolutions, sale and disposition of assets and consolidations and corporate mergers. I have obtained such approvals for nursing homes, low-income and elderly housing, educational institutions and churches as well as many others.
