Jennifer Reedstrom Bishop has worked exclusively with nonprofit organizations for over twenty years. From serving as outside general counsel to large academic-related foundations and private foundations, to assisting start-up nonprofits and religious organizations, her practice spans the spectrum of the nonprofit sector. Jennifer regularly counsels charities on accepting complex and unusual charitable gifts, such as LLC or closely held stock, as well as acceptable gift restrictions and donor involvement. She has unique expertise in permissible restrictions on scholarships, including those which might be limited under Title VI and Title IX. She is expert on all issues facing nonprofits from mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, and restructuring affiliated structures, to governance matters such as conflict of interest, intermediate sanctions, public charity status, and private foundation issues.
Jennifer’s practice also includes the health care sector and she regularly advises physicians, hospitals, clinics, and other health care entities on negotiating the complex health regulatory environment. She also provides advice on joint ventures, affiliations, medical staff matters, contracting, tax-exemption matters, and a variety of business planning topics.
