Part I: The Small Business Reorganization Act
What Your Small Business Clients Need to Know Right Now

Presented by: Robert Charbonneau, Jacqueline Calderín, & Daniel Sparks

Thursday, October 1st
12:00 PM EDT
  • The balance of power has shifted in Chapter 11 practice for American small business, which makes up over 90% of the American business economy.
  • Increased debt limits under the CARES Act provide not-so-small-businesses the powerful protections of this new legislation – but perhaps only for another 6 months – so the time to act is now.

Live Interactive Q&A – Bring/Submit Your Questions

Time will be reserved to answer specific questions from attendees and we encourage those in attendance to come with questions prepared. If you would like specific questions addressed, you are invited to submit questions in advance to Kellie Zachman at

Daniel Sparks
When Dan Sparks was 11 years old, his father took him to the local jail and showed him people behind bars. He vividly remembers the deplorable conditions and the feeling that he never wanted to go to jail again. Then, he became curious about why the men were in jail. He wanted to know what had led them to that place and about the laws that put them there.

Dan remains curious about the law in his current practice at Christian & Small. He continues to gain first-hand experience and often puts himself in his client’s shoes, knowing that legal issues are as important to clients at midnight as they are during business hours. Dan represents lenders, corporations and individuals in all aspects of commercial litigation, bankruptcy, workouts, asset recovery and foreclosure matters.
