    Don’t Wait! What Businesses Should do at the First Sign of Financial Trouble

    Don’t Wait! What Businesses Should do at the First Sign of Financial Trouble

    One of the worst things a business owner can do is wait too long to seek restructuring and insolvency advice once financial distress arises. This includes waiting until all of the money is gone, signing the forbearance that waives all owner's rights when lenders are out of patience, or the foreclosure is tomorrow. Saving the business takes time and money, but Bankruptcy & Creditor’s Rights Practice Group members Vickie L. Driver and Crissie W. Stephenson explain how experienced legal counsel can help business owners address issues right away instead of enduring additional financial hurdles.

    On July 9, 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Muscogee (Creek) Nation reservation had never been disestablished, creating a jurisdictional shift in criminal law matters and leaving many unanswered questions regarding civil regulatory issues. One year later, a number of these issues—such as taxes for tribal citizens—have gone unresolved. Indian Law & Gaming Practice Group members Jennifer N. Lamirand and Greg Buzzard explain the history and impact of McGirt v. Oklahoma, and why it will be referenced on matters of legal reform for years to come.
