INTRODUCTION TO THE FIRM
Zateeny Loftus, LLP regularly counsels clients regarding the formation and operation of nonprofit corporations and charitable trusts, governance, fiduciary duties, and best practices, federal, state, and local tax exemption and other tax matters, charitable giving and fundraising, institutional affiliations and reorganizations, international philanthropy, day-to-day operations, and related matters. Our firm’s partners, Debbie Zateeny and Ann Loftus, had previously practiced nonprofit organization law with large Philadelphia law firms. The unique legal needs of nonprofit organizations and the lack of nonprofit client-centered law firms led to the formation of our firm. We offer the sophisticated advice of a large national firm but with the personal touch characteristic of small firms. We pride ourselves on client service and value. We make it a priority to learn about our clients so we can anticipate their needs. We emphasize preventive law but are also able to provide services to clients in crisis. We often act as general counsel for clients that do not have in-house counsel and, in that capacity, we serve as a gatekeeper to legal services to be provided by us or others. For clients with in-house counsel, we strive to become colleagues in arms working collaboratively and providing services that require our expertise.
