LASC can provide free legal advice and representation to eligible businesses and nonprofits on topics including:

  • Nonprofit Entity Incorporation

  • IRS Regulatory Interpretation
  • Social Enterprise Issues
  • For-Profit Entity Incorporation
  • Commercial Lease Review

Eligibility for free legal services for nonprofits is determined on a case-by-case basis by the Community Economic Development team at LASC. A number of factors are considered, including:
*Ability of the organization to pay for legal services
*Income of the members of the organization
*Who the organization serves

Eligibility for free legal services for businesses is generally determined based on income.  If a business or nonprofit does not qualify for free services, referrals will be made to other legal resources.

LASC is committed to creating an environment of prosperity for all central Ohioans. This can only be achieved by offering legal support to the nonprofit leaders on the front lines of community development, the small business owners who drive our economy, and the local advocates who fight for neighborhood and community  change.
