Nonprofit Leadership, Operations & Capacity Building

We help nonprofits achieve greater impact by employing simple approaches that enhance leadership capacity, messaging, internal policies, management practices, and operations across the functions of their board, enterprise support departments, and program teams. 

We do this by supporting:

  • Leadership vision - providing independent and experienced counsel to leaders guiding their organization through periods of change, growth, and innovation. 
  • In-house governance, compliance, legal and operations practices - we help simplify, support, and scale these critical functions for growing organizations, enhancing what works and improving what should work better.
  • Practical tools for use throughout all functions of an organization - from the boardroom to program teams. 
  • Messaging clarity and consistency - ensuring that your organization's unique competitive advantage is clear and consistently communicated in an increasingly crowded and competitive marketplace.
  • Program development that emphasizes new, specific, and measurable outcomes.
  • Fundraising & Development guidance and support that recognizes that you and your team are your own greatest development experts and that nobody tells your story better than you!

Legal Industry Social Impact

We are helping reinvent how the law achieves and supports social impact.

We have seen firsthand how lawyers and law firms play an increasingly important role in supporting social impact clients. From structuring impact investing and social finance transactions to counseling corporate clients in cross-sector social impact initiatives, the role of the lawyer in serving the social sector is evolving rapidly.

We help law firms move beyond pro bono alone to develop more comprehensive "Social Impact & Innovation" practices and approaches that engage both their clients and their talent in ways that make a difference - and a profit.

We teach "Lawyers as Social Innovators" in law schools and help law schools develop Social Impact approaches and clinical practices.
