Learn our Approach

The Perlman & Perlman Difference

We differ from other non-legal compliance services that provide “one-size-fits-all” or “do-it-yourself” solutions to registration. Our process starts with a comprehensive analysis of your organization’s charitable solicitation activities.  We consider not just where you solicit, but how and at what level.

Our Compliance Specialists are supported by our attorneys to ensure that your registrations are complete and fully in compliance with each state’s requirements. The result is a compliance service that uniquely complements your organization’s fundraising strategy, reducing uncertainty, and saving you time and money that helps you better accomplish your organization’s mission.

As part of our fundraising compliance services:

  • We help you to determine where you need to register by providing a legal analysis of your fundraising activity and resulting registration obligations
  • We prepare and submit the state forms in accordance with the states’ expectations
  • We provide complete annual management of the process with regular status reports
  • You communicate with a dedicated Compliance Specialist supported by knowledgeable attorneys
  • We help you address any compliance issues using our knowledge of the state regulators and the law
  • We provide client alerts regarding upcoming regulatory changes
