The Church Lawyers is comprised of both nonprofit attorneys and real estate attorneys, routinely engaging in property matters such as the sale and disposition of property, leases, contracts, financing, and property tax exemptions.
Our attorneys leverage their knowledge and experience to guide your property transaction from start to finish, from initial negotiations through property closings and the ensuing property tax exemption process thereafter. We regularly engage with representatives at each stage of the project, working with agents, lending institutions, and title companies to protect our clients’ interests.
Our attorneys routinely advise clients on issues related to the ownership of intellectual property such as sermons, writings, music, curriculum and other creative works.
By creating well-drafted employment agreements and works-for-hire agreements, we help churches and their employees maintain clarity of ownership of such works and clearly establish each parties’ rights and responsibilities for the use of the creative works.
Additionally, we help clients safeguard their intellectual property by registering for trademarks on their behalf; as clients seek to strengthen their brand, we work to secure it.
