It is encouraging to see how SACC Georgia members have adapted and enhanced their business processes and offerings so quickly during this unprecedented time. Over the next few weeks we plan on highlighting how some of our members have handled this situation. We hope that you find it inspiring to read about. 

In an effort to help small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic, the law firm Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton, is part of the Georgia Small Business/Nonprofit COVID-19 Remote Pro Bono Clinic that was recently launched.This project helps small businesses and nonprofits in Georgia handle the impact of COVID-19. Through this project, small businesses and nonprofits can receive free consultation from attorneys from Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton along with a few other Atlanta law firms.
This new pro bono clinic assists small businesses and nonprofits in Georgia with 25 or fewer employees. These organizations can submit their legal questions using an online form located on the Georgia Bar website ( see link below also ). Pro bono lawyers with legal subject matter expertise in a selected subject matter will then be matched with a small business to offer a free 45-minute telephone or virtual legal consultation on questions related to:
·       The CARES Act (federal relief programs)
·       Commercial leases
(amendments, terminations)
·       Employment (furloughs, leases, layoffs,
·       Dissolution/bankruptcy/business closure
·       Contracts/force majeure
·       Insurance

Certain critical infrastructure industries have a special responsibility in these times to continue operations. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has issued guidance and lists to support State, Local, and industry partners in identifying the critical infrastructure sectors and the essential workers needed to maintain the services and functions Americans depend on daily.

Elanders Americas supports customers operating in critical infrastructure industries, as designated by the DHS. As part of the supply chain supporting those industries, Elanders Americas will remain operational to provide the products and services necessary for their customers to support critical infrastructure needs.
