The Small Firm Advantage
Ellen Lubell works with a wide variety of clients, from universities, community-based organizations and publishers, to start-up nonprofits and individual artists. Without the bureaucracy of a large firm, Ellen is agile and responsive. She recognizes the importance of listening carefully to clients, asking questions to deepen understanding and working collaboratively to develop practical solutions. When clients’ legal challenges involve conflict, Ellen helps preserve relationships that are valuable and prudently end those that are not.
With seasoned insight into the legal and business challenges facing nonprofit organizations, Ellen offers expert legal guidance to assist a wide range of nonprofit boards and managers. Her work extends from obtaining "501(c)(3)" status and advising on governance, regulatory compliance and fundraising, to negotiating complex transactions.
Ellen’s intellectual property expertise – primarily in copyright – encompasses traditional print and photographic media, digital works, multimedia and software. She advises individuals, nonprofits and business clients seeking to protect their materials and make them more widely accessible to the public, and she guides them in the appropriate use of materials created by others.
Our CPA firm has worked frequently with Ellen over the years on nonprofit tax and compliance issues. Ellen has been outstanding. She’s smart, responsive, professional and, most importantly, someone we trust. We recommend her to clients with confidence, knowing not only that they’ll receive wise counsel, but that they’ll also enjoy working with her.
