Douglas Varley Discusses Key Issues for General Counsel of International Nonprofits at Directors Roundtable Event

January 22, 2019, The Directors Roundtable

In late 2018, Douglas Varley joined other distinguished law firm leaders to honor Joshua Mintz, General Counsel of the MacArthur Foundation, and his Law Department at the “World Recognition of Distinguished General Counsel” sponsored by The Directors Roundtable. In recognition of their achievements, Mr. Mintz and his Legal Department were presented with the leading global honor for General Counsel and Law Departments.

During the event, Mr. Mintz addressed key issues facing General Counsel of an international not-for-profit in the context of the evolving nature of philanthropy and the role of private foundations in effecting social change. Mr. Varley and his fellow panelists joined the discussion on these important topics and shared their expertise on other key issues for tax exempts and their donors.
