We represent a wide array of associations, with a diverse collection of legal needs. These groups may include trade associations, homeowners associations, campground associations, and labor unions with their affiliated associations. Some legal areas of particular importance:
- Employee Benefits
- Legislative and Political Activities
- National and International Resources
- Organization Issues
In addition, most associations are organized as nonprofit corporations which, under Michigan’s Nonprofit Corporation Act, create unique issues that associations must address. This includes governance structure and liability protection for volunteers, and fiduciary obligations of officers and directors. We can assist your association in drafting and updating its corporate documents and its policies on various governance topics such as antitrust, conflict of interest, record retention and whistleblower protection.
