Ofer Lion, partner in Seyfarth's Corporate department, to present "Current Developments and Trends Affecting Nonprofits and Foundations: Avoiding Red Flags and Dealing with Your State’s Attorney General" at the 54th Annual Hawaii Tax Institute in Honolulu, Hawaii on November 6th.
 
In the charitable sector, audits, investigations and enforcement actions by the State’s Attorney General focus on executive compensation, diversion of charitable assets, self-dealing, and governance practices. What triggers many of these audits is unclear because the Attorney General’s rationale for launching an audit is typically not disclosed to the charity under review. This session will discuss current trends affecting all nonprofits, how to avoid red flags that may trigger an audit, and how to handle an Attorney General audit or other enforcement action.
