Protecting Your Community in Bankruptcy Matters During the Pandemic-

As the American Bankruptcy Institute notes, the extent and duration of  damage to the U.S. economy from COVID-19 is unknown at this point. Bankruptcy filings are due to rise – some say in record numbers. A number of retail businesses have filed petitions for bankruptcy relief:  Lord & Taylor, Neiman Marcus, Sur La Table, Brooks Brothers and JC Penney. Analysts are predicting many more large and small bankruptcies. It has become increasingly common for “1st day motions” to be filed which seek interim and final orders affecting the debtor’s treatment of post-petition obligations, including payments of municipal taxes,  CAM fees (which include municipal taxes) and business licensing fees. John Finnegan of Hill Law and Rob Kerwin, both MMLA past presidents, will discuss what happens when a retail business in your community files bankruptcy and how to best protect the municipality.  Learn how to be proactive rather than reactive in such matters.
