TLG “Ranked” by the Prestigious U.S. Legal 500 in the 2022 National Not-for-Profit Category – One of Only 19 Law Firms Nationwide and the Only Boutique Firm

Tenenbaum Law Group PLLC has been “ranked” by the prestigious U.S. Legal 500 for 2022 in the national Not-for-Profit category. One of only 19 law firms ranked nationwide and the only boutique firm, this is a highly coveted, distinguished honor. TLG Managing Partner Jeff Tenenbaum is also one of only five members of the U.S. Legal 500 Not-for-Profit Hall of Fame. Details can be found here and here.

Here are excerpts from the published client testimonials:

“This is the most responsive legal firm that I have worked with in my career. They are quick to respond and quick to provide work product. Some firms tend to ramble, but not the Tenenbaum Law Group. They listen to our concerns and provide clear, concise responses.”

“Jeff and Nisha are an incredible team – they get how their work impacts their clients – not just legally, but operationally and financially as well.”

“Jeff Tenenbaum is a leading expert in non-profit law. He is extremely knowledgeable and responsive to client questions and concerns.”

“Jeff Tenenbaum and his team are exceptional partners for associations in their legal and governance needs. Tenenbaum is smart, practical, and easy to work with.”

“TLG is extremely responsive and gets work done quickly. Jeff Tenenbaum has a very practical, real-world approach to solving problems, which makes him a pleasure to work with.”

“Tenenbaum Law Group didn’t miss a beat during COVID-19, despite an increased workload with event cancellation negotiations, PPP loan questions, and Employee Retention Tax credit questions. They provide expertise in the not-for-profit industry and during the last year have provided informed advice regarding a range of issues including COVID-19 specific issues, bylaws, and board governance, filing an Amicus Curiae Brief, and hotel negotiations.”

In addition to other honors and recognitions, in its first year of existence, TLG was awarded the (top) Tier 1 designation in the Washington, DC metropolitan area for Nonprofit/Charities Law for 2021 by Best Law Firms/U.S. News & World Report®, and then again for 2022. The firm is one of only six law firms in the region to have been granted this distinguished Tier 1 honor in 2021 and 2022, and the only boutique firm among them. The unsolicited testimonials received by Best Law Firms/U.S. News & World Report® from the firm’s clients can be read here.

TLG Managing Partner Jeff Tenenbaum Quoted in New York Magazine Article, “Black Lives Matter’s National Organization Opens Its Books. What Do They Reveal?”

TLG Managing Partner Jeff Tenenbaum was quoted in the May 20, 2022 issue of New York Magazine in the Magazine’s continuing coverage of the Black Lives Matter national organization: “The extent that the house was used for the personal benefit of those who run the organization raises significant additional legal and tax concerns,” said Jeffrey Tenenbaum, a nonprofit lawyer in Washington, D.C., with nearly three decades of experience. According to 990, Cullors reimbursed the organization $390 for her use of the house. Considering the cost of the property and what would be considered a fair market value for its use, Tenenbaum said, “That only $390 was paid back to the organization for the use of the house for personal benefits seems fairly egregious on its face.” He was also bothered that Cullors served as BLMGNF’s sole board member for the fiscal year. Such an arrangement is permissible under Delaware corporate law, where the organization is incorporated, he said, but it remains “a big red flag to me from an IRS perspective.”
