Personal Liability of Directors


While lawsuits against nonprofit board members are uncommon, it behooves all nonprofit directors to be informed about their legal duties and how they can minimize the risk of personal liability. Antheil Maslow & MacMinn attorneys assist the board members of tax-exempt clients in appropriate preventive action and, if necessary, provide sound legal counsel, strong representation and advocacy against claims of conflict of interest, negligent conduct and “breach” or failure to live up to legal duties.
