Trade Association Law


Trade and Professional Associations face many of the same governance, transactional and operational legal issues as any business or corporation, plus the non-profit questions that arise from their specific membership organization issues.

As Trade Association Lawyers with offices in Washington DC and near West Palm Beach, FL, we have a national practice from which we counsel our Association Clients regarding antitrust concerns, tax-exempt status, and with general legal services regarding membership arrangements. We have years of experience monitoring, reporting, and organizing industry political action based on changes in state, federal, and local laws, regulations and policies that may impact the membership of our trade association clients and ancillary industry concerns.  Some of our areas of Association Practice are:

  • Advertising Agreements
  • Antitrust
  • Certifications (including intellectual property registration and protection)
  • Employment
  • Hotel Contracts
  • License Agreements
  • Magazine Publication
  • Membership
  • Legislative Monitoring, Reporting & Advocacy
  • Litigation & Enforcement
  • Contract Review
  • Tax-Exempt Status
  • Trade Association Law
  • Non-Profit Corporate Governance & Counsel
