On Thursday, May 7, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., join partners and colleagues from throughout New Jersey for “Managing the Legal Waters During a Crisis: Strategies to Help Organizations Navigate Turbulent Times and Legal Issues.” Led by Christine Michelle Duffy, Esq., the Director of the New Jersey program of Pro Bono Partnership, this virtual workshop will provide an overview of issues that seriously affect organizations during an economic crisis and highlight potential legal issues and proactive strategies for addressing them. Content will cover questions and issues such as:
- Are there ways to reduce costs without significantly impacting your mission?
- Can employment arrangements or existing contracts be changed?
- What about collaborations or mergers – do they offer solutions?
- What do you need to consider as you decide to persevere or possibly close the doors?
Hosted in partnership by New Jersey Health Initiatives, New Jersey Prevention Network, Partners in Prevention and Pro Bono Partnership, this workshop is intended to help organizations assess their viability and avoid significant landmines, as well as to give them the tools they need as they weigh their options for the future in these challenging times.
