Thought Leaders: Help for businesses is all around

When you work in and around the bankruptcy business, it’s easy to become a good listener.

Business owners and other high-level stakeholders more often than not dedicate every facet of their being to company operations. They manage staffs, supply chains, finances and a thousand other items.

So when things get tough, emotions run high and they occasionally need a shoulder to lean on, as well as some critical and worthwhile advice on where to turn and what to do next.

Four experts with close ties to the bankruptcy sector discussed what they have heard from company officials, advice on what’s ahead and much more alongside Hodgson Russ LLP partner Garry Graber during this month’s Thought Leaders session.

The months since mid-March when the coronavirus pandemic took hold, have been a roller coaster in this realm.

“We work with clients who have complex businesses and run into complex business issues,” said Joseph Heim, a partner at Dopkins & Company LLP.

Inquiries from businesses run the gamut, he said. During the best of times, people typically want advice on how to grow a business or transition to the next generation.
