Dear clients, colleagues, and friends:
I hope that you and yours are staying well during these challenging times. Although it still remains chilly here in Philadelphia, we are starting to see signs of Spring. Recently, I was thrilled to discover a tulip farm not too far away in New Jersey. While I was disappointed to not be able to go see their fields of tulips (apparently an annual event), I was delighted to order a few bunches for my mom for her birthday this month. I don’t know about you, but in the midst of this pandemic, I find that it is the simple things that I am most appreciating. A sunny day, a walk with my (very exuberant) dog, a lovely bunch of tulips (hence the photo), or just a chance to talk over Zoom with a friend. On several group calls recently, different people observed that the work from home phenomena is changing how we interact with each other, making it just a little more personal, perhaps even a little more human. Especially in a difficult field like law, that’s a welcome change. What are you most appreciating this month? I can tell you one person I appreciate is our Of Counsel, Scott Kislin, who has been guiding me and several of our clients through the CARES Act, last month in the intricacies of applying for the PPP and EIDL, and now this month in how to comply with the loan forgiveness aspect of the PPP, should you have been fortunate enough to receive one in the first wave (or are able to in a second wave). Stay well!
