Svetlana (Lana) Ros and Bruce J. Wisotsky, Members of law firm Norris McLaughlin, P.A., will present the free webinar, “The Financial Impact of COVID-19: Bankruptcy 101,” at noon on Friday, May 29, for the New Jersey Medical Group Management Association and eight other state Medical Group Management Associations.
“COVID-19 has brought on significant financial hardships to small businesses, including medical practices. In the face of a practice’s substantially reduced income and mounting debt, it’s helpful to be educated on avenues of business preservation,” said Wisotsky.
Ros added, “We continue to provide critical information, updates, and best practice directives as the health care industry is severely impacted by the coronavirus pandemic and it is imperative that they be aware of their options, now and in the future.”
