The Pro Bono Legal Clinic is a partnership between INIE and Holland & Knight, providing under-served nonprofits with business and transactional legal services that they would otherwise not have access to or be able to afford. The ultimate goal is to assist nonprofit organizations in better serving the disadvantaged and enhancing the quality of life of communities in the Big Bend area. 

The Clinic operates by recruiting area attorneys and law firms to donate their time and expertise on behalf of INIE's nonprofit members in a wide range of business legal matters, such as:


 

Compliance with state and federal regulations
Contracts
Corporate structure and governance
Employment law
Fundraising
Intellectual property
Lobbying
Merger, bankruptcy and dissolution
Real estate
Tax law and tax exempt status

 


 

The Clinic will also be available to provide routine legal “check-ups” to nonprofit organizations that do not present a specific legal issue, but rather would prefer to ensure they are meeting legal requirements and/or identify and remedy any potential legal issues.
