Our friends at Meyers Roman have been pro bono (or skill-based volunteer) superheroes over the past 6+ weeks. Very early on in this crisis, Managing Partner Seth Briskin lent his expertise to several nonprofit organizations trying to navigate significant HR issues as they closed their doors temporarily. We also called upon Seth and his colleague, Partner Lisa Lowe, to meet with 30+ arts leaders convened by Arts Cleveland to help them think through their HR issues and options as the impact of COVID-19 hit the arts sector. With many organizations engaging artists as independent contractors and/or part-time employees, Seth and Lisa were able to help organizational leaders consider both how best to support their people and position their organization for survival beyond this crisis. They clearly reviewed the CARES Act and Families First Coronavirus Response Act and offered follow-up support to nonprofits.
The Meyers Roman team remains ready and willing to guide nonprofits as they navigate what comes next, and we are extremely grateful for their partnership!
