A founding partner at Tennant Lubell LLC, Ellen Lubell specializes in nonprofit law and intellectual property law. She advises a wide range of organizations and creative individuals. Her clients trust her to help them find the best ways to advance their efforts, whether strengthening governance and operations, protecting creations, structuring collaborations, or facilitating dissemination of work. Her intellectual property expertise – primarily in copyright – extends from traditional print and photographic media to digital works, multimedia and software.
Ellen provides services that encompass the full lifecycle of nonprofit organizations. For organizations that are just starting up, she secures corporate and “501(c)(3)” tax-exempt status. Once established, she provides ongoing counsel on governance, regulatory compliance, fundraising, conflicts of interest, private inurement, unrelated business income, and general business transactions.
On intellectual property matters, Ellen has extensive experience meeting the needs of both corporate clients and individual authors and artists. She negotiates publishing, licensing and distribution agreements, and offers strategic support on how best to protect intellectual property.
