The ‘responsive and timely’ team at Sidley Austin LLP has a ‘real breadth of knowledge, with the depth of the firm available when needed’. The team has been working for NFP clients in connection with IRS audits, charitable gifts and governance reform. One recent highlight includes representing the America Osteopathic Association (AOA) in class action litigation challenging the requirement of the AOA that, in order to be board-certified, an osteopathic physician must be an AOA member. The firm has also formulated grant-making guidelines and procedures to allow a group of affiliated family foundations and trusts to give around $1.5bn annually to charitable organizations. In Chicago, Michael Clark and Paul Svoboda lead the practice, and Jack Bierig and counsel Lynn Fleisher also highly recommended. The practice also has lawyers located in Los Angeles, Washington DC and New York.
