The Community Development Clinic (CDC) offers services to small businesses, non-profits and local government in the SouthCoast of Massachusetts.




-Drafting Corporate Documents

We work closely with our clients to understand business objectives and to organize their business as a sole proprietorship, partnership, C-Corp, S-Corp, or limited liability company (LLC). The CDC is also available to help clients meet requirements for registering as a non-profit organization.


-Conducting Legal Audits

The CDC can help you “stress test” your small business or non-profit, helping to identify legal holes or weaknesses. This is a preventative measure meant to help small business owners and non-profit directors avoid costly mistakes.


-Board Role & Responsibilities

The CDC is available to make presentations to boards of non-profit organizations, advising them in their roles as fiduciaries.


-Preparing State and Federal Filings

We work with clients to understand federal and state filing obligations, and to prepare routine returns and filings.

Small businesses drive the economy. The CDC is committed to researching legal issues and policy in an evolving legal system.

The CDC helps clients review business agreements. We read contracts line-by-line to analyze its function and fairness.
