About this Event

Please join our panel of leading legal experts and learn how to best respond to and manage the many challenges that threaten your business daily in these unprecedented times.

Our panel will cut to the chase on the most valuable “need to know” information and provide you with invaluable takeaways that will help you get through this as best as possible, given your situation.

They will address questions and issues such as:

  • Where and how to start to restructure a business to prevent painful legal actions and shutdowns?
  • How to deal with expensive employment issues such as downsizing?
  • How can my business collect from others who owe us money?
  • How do I protect my personal assets?
  • What government assistance programs can I use?
  • What legal actions might arise and how best do I deal with them?

We are taking questions in advance that can be submitted when you register. For more information, please contact

Don Jack, one of Canada’s leading business litigators will moderate and pose your most pressing questions to Pavle Masic and Jason Dutrizac of DS Avocats who work closely with clients on proactive solutions to prevent and/or mitigate insolvency and bankruptcy and to avail every legal option available to them.

Andrew Camman of Polishuk, Camman and Steel and David Law of Law at Work, are two senior leading employment and labour lawyers who will share their “in the trenches” advice on how to take full advantage of short term subsidies such as CEWS, how to make the tough decisions about downsizing and what your legal obligations and rights are.

Details for joining the meeting will be sent in advance of the event.
