Legal Quick Hit: "Litigation Basics for Nonprofits: What to Do When a Complaint or Subpoena Is Served and Other Tips and Strategies" for the Association of Corporate Counsel's Nonprofit Organizations Committee

This event has already occurred.

Some nonprofit organizations – a relatively small minority – are heavily involved in litigation, both as a party (either as a plaintiff and/or a defendant) and as a witness (such as being the recipient of a third-party subpoena or the recipient of an information and document request in connection with a governmental investigation). But for that majority of nonprofits that are fortunate enough to not be frequently involved in litigation, there generally are more questions than answers in this area, and that is not a good position for nonprofit in-house counsel to be in when confronted by litigation out of the blue. But not for much longer.

This program – led by two of Venable’s seasoned litigators who have worked with scores of Venable’s nonprofit clients – will give participants basic tools to answer the following questions (and more):

  • What do I do when my organization is named as a defendant in a lawsuit and served with a summons and complaint?
  • What do I do when my organization is served with a third-party subpoena as a witness?
  • What do I do when my organization is served with a request for information or documents from a governmental agency?
  • What do I do when my organization is served with a search warrant?
  • What do I do when my organization is served with criminal process?

Come armed with your questions. This will be a very interesting, fast-paced Legal Quick Hit focused on practical tips and strategies that you will not want to miss.
