Charities &
Non-Profits

KSW Lawyers has a long history of being part of and acting on behalf of local non-profit organizations in the Surrey, White Rock, Langley and Abbotsford areas.  We are proud to have been part of many philanthropic endeavors in the communities we serve.  

Our lawyers routinely act on behalf of non-profit organizations to assist with the unique legal issues that face these organizations.  We represent many charitable organizations ranging from health care societies, hospital boards, religious organizations, professional associations, conservation foundations, educational institutions, charitable foundations, non-profit sporting associations and seniors support groups.

Charities and Non-Profit Lawyers
Our expertise extends to all areas of charity and non-profit law. Here are some of the areas we regularly assist our clients with:
  • Incorporation – Incorporating your society will provides limited protection to its members and upon incorporation a charity becomes a separate legal entity (a corporation) and the corporation (not the members) is generally liable for its debts and obligations.  Additionally, we can assist with winding up a society when it is no longer in operation
  • Governance – Drafting and amending bylaws and policies providing advice regarding the administration of annual general meetings and creating special resolutions, dealing with member’s disputes and Civil Resolution Tribunal Applications. Advising on disputes and providing summary advice regarding privacy legislation
  • Planned giving – assisting charities in allowing their members and donors to set up gifts to the organization on the death of the donor
  • Employment – assisting with all workplace matters including creating employment contracts which limit severance liability and creating workplace policies for employees of the society. Assisting with hiring and dismissal planning
  • Insurance coverage – providing advice on insurance disputes and assisting with claims arising on behalf of and against the society
  • Tax planning – assisting with obtaining charitable status and ensuring continued eligibility for charitable tax benefits
  • Real Estate Transactions – advising on acquiring and disposing of real property and advice regarding negotiating and litigating terms of lease interests of the society
  • Contract Disputes – advising on and negotiating and enforcing contracts on behalf of the society; including commercial disputes and claims for debt
  • Estate Administration and litigation – advising charities who have received gifts under a donor’s will with disputes arising as a result of challenges to the validity of these gifts

Chris Ness is excellent. His assistance with estate tax issues and incorporations, following the loss of a family member and related financial matters and tax filings, was invaluable. He is knowledgeable, professional, kind, and accessible. Highly recommend his services.

Chris Drinovz of KSW Lawyers is exceptional! My employment matter was rather complex. Chris provided sound advice, was compassionate and thorough during our intake and follow up discussions. His professional approach and representation secured a quick and satisfying outcome. I highly recommend seeking legal advice from KSW Lawyers; know your rights!
