As general counsel to HOAs and community associations, we advise boards of directors and managers on how to comply with the Colorado Common Interest Ownership Act, the Colorado Revised Nonprofit Corporation Act, anti-discrimination laws and applicable administrative regulations and statutes.
We advise association boards on day-to-day operations, including interpretation and enforcement of governing documents, fiduciary duties of directors, amending and restating governing documents, preparing and enforcing vendor contracts, board meetings, election issues, employment law, etc.
Managing disputes – We work to keep our clients out of lawsuits. To that end, we provide associations and their boards with risk analysis, cost estimates, and options for managing conflict, including mediation and arbitration. When alternative dispute resolution proves ineffective, we litigate aggressively to win the dispute.
Contracts – Year after year, associations enter into contracts for services, including for long-term services and special projects. We assist associations and boards with negotiating and drafting contracts, interpreting existing agreements and enforcing them when contractors fail to abide by their terms. Contract services include, but are not limited to: management, employment, repairs, landscaping, patrol services, elevator maintenance, concrete installations, asphalt paving, painting, plumbing, and electrical.
