Bringing Complementary Organizations Together
Collaboration between and among organizations often allows them to offer additional critical services to a greater number of clients. The recent association between Mautner Project and Whitman-Walker Health is an example of such collaboration, allowing both organizations access to larger populations in the District of Columbia and expanding their service offerings, while also reducing overhead costs.
Lawyers from our Washington, D.C., Northern Virginia, and Baltimore offices represented Mautner Project, a lesbian and bisexual women's health organization in connection with the transition of its programs and staff over to Whitman-Walker Health. Our team advised Mautner Project as to the potential legal structures the parties could use to achieve the contemplated collaboration. In parallel, we assisted with the negotiation of key transaction details and with the signing and closing of a definitive letter agreement. After the transition was complete, we assisted with the dissolution of the tax-exempt organization that formerly housed Mautner Project's programs and staff.
