Robinson+Cole's Health Law Group advises tax-exempt hospital systems and other types of tax-exempt health care entities on matters that relate to obtaining and maintaining exempt status. We counsel hospital systems on forming and structuring tax-exempt subsidiaries, including the structuring of governance relationships with tax-exempt supporting organizations. We provide advice on maintaining exempt status, including compliance with Section 501(r) of the Internal Revenue Code, executive compensation and excess benefit transactions, best governance practices, and avoidance of unrelated business taxable income.
Our lawyers provide health care entities, and foundations that support such entities, with advice on matters relating to state regulation of charitable entities. We advise on the formation and structuring of medical foundations, as well as on matters relating to charitable solicitations, governance, fiduciary responsibilities, endowment management, and state contractor and lobbying regulations. We represent clients in matters before the Office of the Attorney General, the Internal Revenue Service, the Department of Revenue Services, the probate courts, and other authorities.
