Morgen Cheshire has dedicated her legal career to serving the nonprofit sector. Formerly a partner at Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP, where she co-chaired the Nonprofit Practice Group, Morgen founded a boutique firm in July 2011 dedicated exclusively to serving the nonprofit sector.
The firm provides affordable and accessible legal services, bringing sophisticated legal counsel within reach for the nonprofit sector. The firm serves as outside general counsel for nonprofit organizations, offering a broad range of assistance and simply project-based services. Its attorneys specialize in tax compliance and governance issues, while also providing on-call and continuous legal representation to meet clients’ day-to-day needs. As they resolve legal problems, they also look for ways to improve methods and systems so that the same problems do not reoccur. This enables clients to conserve their resources and redirect them toward accomplishing greater goals. It is the firm's mission to strengthen Philadelphia’s nonprofit sector.
Morgen has taught a course on nonprofit organizations for Drexel University’s Masters in Public Policy Program, and was a volunteer attorney for PVLA and a member of the Philadelphia Museum of Art Associates Advisory Committee. A Grinnell College graduate, Morgen earned her law degree from Temple University School of Law, and studied art law at Columbia University.
