Representation of Texas Nonprofit Corporations
Overview: Representation of Texas Nonprofit Corporations
Freeman Law attorney, Cory Halliburton, recently presented for the State Bar of Texas at its 13th Annual Essentials of Business Law Course on the topic of Texas Nonprofit Corporations: Legal Service and Attorney Board Service. The presentation provides a summary overview of the nonprofit organizations sector, the legal nuances that nonprofit organizations face, and the areas of legal counsel commonly addressed by the lawyer for nonprofit organizations. The presentation focuses on the Texas nonprofit corporation, but Mr. Halliburton has near 15 years’ experience in representing tax-exempt and nonprofit organizations across the United States. As an added bonus for his colleagues in the trenches, Mr. Halliburton’s paper addresses common ethical conundrums faced by the Texas lawyer who serves as an officer or director of a nonprofit organization.
