GA Law Firms, Pro Bono Resource Center Launch Free Legal Clinic to Help Local Small Businesses and Nonprofits Survive COVID Pandemic
Clinics Offer Remote Consultations for Navigating CARES Act, Paycheck Protection Program, and Other COVID-19 Legal Concerns
GEORGIA – Today, the State Bar of Georgia Pro Bono Resource Center, along with Georgia law firms and Lawyers for Equal Justice, and in partnership with Lawyers for Good Government Foundation, a non-profit network of more than 125,000 legal advocates with lawyers in all 50 states, announced the launch of a Small Business and Nonprofit Remote Legal Clinic, offering pro bono legal consultations for small business owners and nonprofits to help them navigate the COVID-19 economic crisis and ensuing relief programs.
Qualifying small businesses of 25 or fewer employees and nonprofits will be matched with GA law firms, including Alston & Bird, Eversheds Sutherland, Kilpatrick Townsend, King & Spalding, and Nelson Mullins, for free 45-minute phone or virtual consultations with pro bono attorneys who can answer legal questions and help determine the best path forward for their companies. Consultations will include helping Georgia small business owners or nonprofits understand the legislative language in the CARES Act and Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), and answer any questions related to employment, contracts, commercial leases, insurance and insolvency issues.
Under phase three of stimulus relief legislation passed by Congress, an additional $320 billion has been provided to make new loans under the PPP, which provides forgivable loans to small business that keep employees on the payroll for eight weeks. The measure also includes $60 billion in loans and grants under a separate Economic Injury Disaster Loan program.
“An extraordinary number of small businesses and nonprofits are suddenly fighting for survival. While our firms may otherwise compete in business, we work side-by-side on pro bono and will always come together to fulfill our professional duty to help the community, now more than ever,” said John Fleming, Pro Bono Partner at Eversheds Sutherland.
“The attorneys in our network strive to serve Georgians who do not qualify for free legal services but may not be able to afford traditional representation. That includes many of the small businesses that are looking for support at this time,” said L4EJ Executive Director, JoAnna Smith.
“Hundreds of thousands of small business owners and nonprofits, many of whom already operate on very narrow margins, are still struggling with questions about how their businesses will survive the COVID-19 pandemic. This small business and nonprofit legal clinic can help them navigate the economic crisis that was no fault of their own, and provide them with guidance they desperately need at this time,” said Lawyers for Good Government’s executive director Traci Feit Love.
