Marty Rosenbaum, co-chair in Maslon's Corporate & Securities Group, and Shane Solinger, attorney in Maslon's Corporate & Securities Group, will co-present a webinar titled "Legal Issues: Business Contract Considerations, Workouts and Bankruptcy Relief," for the University of St. Thomas Opus College of Business on May 13, 2020. The program is co-sponsored by LegalCORPS, a Minnesota nonprofit that provides pro bono business law services to low-income entrepreneurs and small nonprofits. The webinar highlights two legal aspects businesses may find themselves facing: working with contracts and bankruptcy and its alternatives. Marty and Shane will share perspectives on the impact of the crisis on contracts, including force majeure clauses, other excuses for nonperformance, and frameworks for renegotiation.
