Compliance for Corporations and Advocacy Groups

Compliance – We Make it Simple

Corporations and nonprofits that are involved in advocacy or political activities face a “crazy quilt” of regulation. Federal and state laws impose wide variety for complex obligations on lobbying, candidate contributions, and other political activities. Corporations or nonprofits that fail to comply with the rules can end up with significant penalties – financial and negative publicity. We can help make sure your headlines stay positive.

Flexible, Fixed-Fee Legal Compliance Programs

You can go with a big Washington law firm and pay steep hourly rates, or choose Chalmers Burch & Adams, receive partner-level focus for a more reasonable cost, and put more money toward your cause.

From initial establishment of your organization through your political process, CBA will help you:

  • Set up your entity the right way – including 501(c)(3) charities, 501(c)(4) advocacy groups, 501(c)(6) trade associations, and section 527 political committees.
  • Advise on how best to raise and spend money.
  • Maintain compliance with ongoing regulatory requirements.
  • Make the right legal decisions.

High-Profile Cases are Fought in Two Courts

When politics are involved, different rules apply. If a problem (real or perceived) ever arises, CBA will be there to defend you – in actual court if required, but also in the court of public opinion. We understand the relationship between law and politics, and our advice draws on our extensive experience in both areas.

Let Chalmers Burch & Adams handle your compliance details so you can focus on your cause.
