Many businesses were forced to close during much of the COVID-19 pandemic, while others were able to shift to remote operations. Everyone is feeling overwhelmed by the financial stress of the stalled economy - even those who were able to take advantage of the CARES Act and PPP loans. Although many counties in Pennsylvania are in the initial stages of reopening, it helps for business owners, and those who counsel them, to be aware of their business leverage, legal options, and the contours of the bankruptcy process. 

Our speakers’ combined legal experience in the area of reorganization and financial restructuring of businesses has helped many companies navigate economic downturns, as well as manage credit risks. Join CCPA as we learn the impacts that existing, new, and proposed laws will have on a variety of business types during this uncertain and unprecedented time.
