Melissa recommends the following next steps:
This would be one of the first tasks of your board: a committee action to search, interview and recommend the lawyer. You will have to go thru the same process for accountant.
Legally if there are legal or criminal problems, it goes on the heads of the board, then the CEO. The Board should be active on this.
For-profit corps are easy to set up and you have flexibility. Get the non-profit foundation wrong, back to the back of the line or worse.
