In 2011, Emily started Robertson Law Office, LLC, through which she helps nonprofits and tax exempt organizations with tax and regulatory compliance, governance, and other areas more unique to the nonprofit sector. Emily has spent much of her career working in and around nonprofit organizations, and this experience has provided her with the ability to understand both the culture within the organization, and the particular demands that nonprofits face on a daily basis. Outside of Emily’s practice, she volunteers for various organizations, including as a board member of the Charities Review Council. She is adjunct faculty for Hamline University in their Masters in Nonprofit Management program, and is a frequent speaker on governance, tax and other issues related to nonprofit organizations. Emily was named a “2014 Up & Coming Attorney” by Minnesota Lawyer.Emily lives in Minneapolis with her wife Rachel, energetic 10-year old Nokomis, three cats and a bunny. When not advising nonprofits or volunteering for them, Emily attempts to be handy by learning how to fix things in their 1910 home, rides her Triumph Bonneville as much as possible, eats delicious food, and gets lost in a good book. In 2013, Emily co-starred and co-produced a show for the 2013 Minnesota Fringe Festival: “…Kill All The Lawyers,” which made a smashing reappearance at the 2015 Charm City Fringe in Baltimore, MD.
