Eliot Green serves as co-chair of the firm's Charitable Giving Practice. He represents private family foundations and corporate foundations and a wide range of public charities, primarily in the areas of health care, social and human services, education, visual and performing arts, and sports and entertainment. He represents several large, well-known private family foundations focusing on governance, regulatory compliance, executive compensation and self-dealing issues. He has extensive experience in the structuring and implementation of complex health care and social and human services provider transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, affiliations, virtual mergers, joint ventures and integrations involving both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. In addition, he advises governing boards of private foundations and public charities on matters such as succession planning, board fiduciary duties and liability, charitable solicitation, accountability, grant-making/monitoring, and collaborations between private foundations and for-profit companies.

Mr. Green's clients include large and medium-sized public charities and private foundations, Fortune 500 companies sponsoring foundations, federal and state political action committees and trade associations. He frequently represents tax-exempt organizations in structuring multi-dimensional affiliations or networks and often provides assistance in restructuring governing board/member relationships.

Loeb & Loeb LLP has a ‘depth of experience and knowledge, which, combined with the high level of client service, makes it very competitive in this area’. Tax specialists Diara Holmes and Marcus Owens joined the firm’s Washington DC office in 2015 from Caplin & Drysdale, Chartered and are commended for their ‘responsiveness and “can-do” attitude’. The firm makes use of its trusts and estates, charitable giving and tax practices to provide a full service to its not-for-profit clients and has been assisting clients in a range of matters, from defending tax-exemption status against the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), to assisting with charitable giving, program-related investments (PRIs) and setting up for-profit subsidiaries. Recent highlights include advising Audrey Irmas on the gift and sale of a piece of art. New York-based lawyers Jason Lilien and Eliot Green are also recommended, as is Leah Bishop in Los Angeles. The firm strengthened its team via the acquisition of Preston Quesenberry to its Washington DC team as of counsel; Quesenberry brings a wealth of knowledge from his previous role as a senior attorney in the Tax Exempt and Government Entities division at the IRS Office of Chief Counsel.
