Not-for-Profit Law

Whether your not-for-profit organization is just an idea, a firmly established entity, or somewhere in between, there are two invariable truths: you have issues that are specific to your corporate structure, and the best legal counsel you can have is an attorney who understands not-for-profit issues, like creation, governance, compliance, taxes, and much more.

Aidan Mitchell-Eaton has built his practice on helping not-for-profits navigate the murky operational and regulatory waters of New York State.  So if you’re trying to figure out the best way to incorporate, wonder which kind of tax-exempt status you qualify for, or only have a vague idea how to structure your organization, Aidan will help you through this sometimes overwhelming process.  He will help you with:

• forming your organization

• determining and then obtaining your tax-exempt status

• developing the policies, procedures and documents that form the basis of your entity

• getting in—and staying in—compliance with regulations governing not-for-profits

Aidan is well-qualified to help you take your not-for-profit from idea to reality, or help your already-established organization with employee and governance issues, tax issues, and staying in compliance.

Trusts and Estates

Planning your estate and creating a trust for your loved ones is a very personal undertaking, and for many people, it can be an emotional one, too.  Interpersonal conflicts, underlying (and sometimes unspoken) family dynamics, and assorted other issues often play a role. And if you have family members with special needs, that adds another layer of complexity; long-term care and finances can be especially difficult issues.

Let Aidan help you.  His clients have taken note of his intelligent, respectful approach to their most demanding challenges, and he is committed to making the process easy for you to understand.

Aidan also works closely with clients to ensure that their families are taken care of, helping with:

  • wills and trusts that include provisions for tax and family management issues
  • Tax Planning
  • Medicaid planning and guardianship
  • living wills, healthcare proxies and powers of attorney
  • beneficiary changes and account transfers
  • gift taxes and asset transfers

And if you need a Supplemental Needs Trust, he will work with you to draft one that protects your family member with special needs, makes sure they’re taken care of, and preserves their governmental benefits.  He understands your concerns and has helped many families through this difficult process.  If you are a trustee of a Supplemental Needs Trust, he can help you administer the trust and explain the complicated rules that govern these trusts.No matter which kind of estate planning assistance you need, Aidan is there to help.

Business Law

Coming from a family with generations of small business owners, Aidan understands business from an owner’s perspective.  He knows the tax and employee issues they face, and the complexities inherent in the myriad transactions that take place every day with customers, vendors, banks, and other entities.

If you own a business, Aidan offers counsel in a number of important areas, including tax planning, formation, and business transactions, and will advise you and represent your company.  If you have questions regarding the establishment and operation of business entities, purchases and sales of assets and companies, labor, employment, and discrimination matters, and minimizing tax liability or maximizing tax credits, call on Aidan to help with the formation of business entities, including LLCs, corporations, and partnerships.  Aidan also assists business owners and executives with organizational documents, such as operating agreements and bylaws, buy-sell agreements, employment agreements, and independent contractor agreements.
